Re: best western US hunting round

well Ive decided tonight that Im going to sportsmans warehouse tomorrow and picking up a tikka t3 lite. Im sick of going back and forth between savage, tikka, rem, wthby..etc and am going for the tikka. Its either going to be 7mm rem or 300 winmag. If I have to Ill flip a coin when Im there

    Every single thing a 7 mag or a 30-06 does a 300 win will do better.

    What's "better" especially in a Tikka T3, a factory rifle that is, IMO, not well suited to be a long range rifle anyway.

    I highly beg to differ. The tikka t3 can be just as good as any other for long range.

    A "LITE" weight rifle wouldnt be my 1st pick for a 1000 yd gun. Take a t3 lite and a gun 3 pounds heavier and see which one holds steadier. Do you feel confident you could kill a bumblebee every time at 100 yds? If you dont it probably isnt a 1000 yd gun.
