Depending on how recoil shy you are, I personally would put a muzzle break on the rifle. A bullet that heavy will have a ton of recoil.
Pro's: You will have a big bullet to put down most anything you are going to hunt for on post. Not sure what post you are on, but on Ft. Riley we had wild elk herds that roamed the training grounds. High BC bullets will retain velocity better and more energy.
Con's: You are not going to have a lot of velocity with that cartridge and weight bullet. I would assume you are going to be somewhere in the 2300 to 2400 fps range. Any long shots are going to be more like artillery than a rifle over 300yds.
Sorry for my ignorance on your question.
I hope this helps a little better. My brother had an 8mm-06. The barrel was shot out on the rifle so we never really did see its potential. Oh well!!!
