    In a Remington I would go with a model 7 CDL in .260 or .270WSM for a nice mix of what you already have.

    Can you get one in .257 Weatherby? Very fast and flat with 100 gr bullets.

    There's a real nice .264 WM or two for sale in the classified section here.. .http://www.longrangehunting.com/forums/f25/

    .260 Rem is also another great deer round that has fantastic ballistics for LR shooting.

    Of course if you wanted to stay with the 30's there's the old ought six, but the two I listed above have much better ballistics overall.
