WSSMs didn't sell well and didn't offer much in the way of advantages over some other standard cartridges and the WSM family.  Plus, there have been some feeding problems with the short, stubby WSSMs, along with reported accuracy problems with the rifles they were chambered in.

As for the 798 and 799, I suspect they too didn't sell well.  The Serbian made (same country of origin as the 798 and 799 barreled actions) Model 5 rimfire was also discontinued.  I haven't heard they were discontinuing the M7 CDL; are you sure about that one?  It is shown in the 2010 Remington catalog and on their website... http://www.remington.com/product-families/firearms/centerfire-families/bolt-action-model-seven.aspx
and I saw it at the SHOT show, so if they've decided to discontinue it, this decision had to come within the past couple weeks.  Where did you hear it was discontinued?

I'm most saddened to see Big Green discontinue the M700 Mountain Ti.

I saw it on the Remington website when I clicked on centerfire rifles and the 798,799 and 7cdl were listed as being discontinued.

I've got a friend with a Remington 700 in .243 WSSM.  Has a Leatherwood M1200 on it.  Laser beam accurate and he doesn't cycle rounds fast enough to ever worry about a jam.  I haven't talked to him about shooting in a couple of years, but he killed a beaver at a little over 700 yards with it a couple of years ago.  Made me proud, I set it up and sighted it in for him...
He still has a little sticker shock over the price of ammo, though...

Well... you could be right, but here's the link for the 7CDL, fresh off their website, and I don't see anything about the M7 CDL being discontinued anywhere.  FWIW, it's listed in the 2010 catalog as well, and it was at this year's SHOT show.  If they discontinue the 7CDL, the only remaining M7 they will have left is the M7 Predator, so I sure hope they don't discontinue it or they may as well discontinue the M7 entirely.

go to bottom of remingtons website and click on centerfire by caliber link and there will be a note in the top left corner indicating models discontinued and the model 7 cdl has this mark beside it in every caliber that it was available in

my mistake it was only discontinued on certain calibers and not the model itself. I apologize
