Re: If you only had one

wapiti13,

I love my Kimber Montana chambered in 7mm WSM. I would tend to agree with your recommendation about the 7mm

    Joel,
    300 Win, accurate, powerful, availability, and can be loaded down or full throttle for any game in North America.
    A brake makes it nice to shoot.

    .300 RUM with the 200g Accubond would be a hard combo to beat for all around. Maybe a little much for deer, but for goats, sheep, elk, griz, they are tough and if your intending on builing the rifle with a brake, it will be very manageable to shoot. I weigh 135 lbs, I do not have a brake on my Rem 700 LSS RUM. The recoil does not seem to bother me, and I can still shoot sub moa out to 800 yards. If you dont feel the need for all that power, the good old .300 Win Mag would still fit the bill for everything above and out to 600 yards.

    I say BS. I reject the question. No one needs settle for one gun. It's not a Ford or Chevy thing either. Going after Griz with a .243 is not like picking a Ford or Chevy. A better analogy might be 7.5 L Ford v. 7.4 L Chevy (The Chevy easily wins if you want to make lots of HP cheap). The 7mm (SAUM, RUM) is probably close to optimal for everything sans the Griz. If/when you do go after Griz, I recommend a 375 RUM.

    I also have a 300 RUM that shoots 200 Accubonds very well, and 180 TSX bullets the same. Sticking with a 30 cal, that would be my choice. Next to that, probably a 338 RUM.
