Re: Ideal 1000yd Elk rifle?
Infidel, I think it all depends on your situation and what else you are hunting. For Kdumph's situation, a 338 fits well because he also has a 7mag. He can tote the lighter 7mag around and when he decides to try an area that could create a longer range shot, he can tote the heavier 338. There is absolutely nothing wrong with a 300. It will get you over 1,000 yards on pretty much any big game animal assuming you have a solid load for it. I think it is an excellent all-around choice, especially if your wife will be shooting it.
