The build will be a 300 wsm throated for 215 Bergers.😎
I think you're going to like that 300 WSM. Good luck and happy hunting!
Just for everyone's general information, here's a good rundown of the WSM cartridges, their pros and cons, and how they stack up next to their closest traditional competitors.

I'd vote 300 wsm as well for the project,  just due to brass availability.   Curious,  what max weight can a stock Tikka run in the 300 wsm without seating or stability issues?

My son has the wsm in a tikka, killer round.👍

The 7 saum and 300 wsm are very accurate and forgiving rounds.  7 saum will have a little better BC.  But 300 wsm will have a little more energy down range (heavier bullet).  I own both and really like both. 7 saum has quite a bit less recoil and ADG brass.  Norma 300 WSM brass is tough to get right now.

My current tikka 7rem mag will become a 7 saum or Sherman Max in the future. Just really wanted to shoot those 215ís out of the 300 with this particular build. The brass situation is a bummer for sure. Hoping ADG or Peterson pick it up going forward.

any reason for the WSM over a standard length magnum, being that tikka's are all long actions?

Length issues when running heavy bullets & a magazine in a tikka.
After market bottom metal and AICS magazines can fix that.
