+1 to what outlaw said

6.5 WSM would be optimal but may shoot it out quickly in matches.
7WSM would be my second choice but may run into the same problem just not quite as fast
300WSM would be next Excellent caliber i just have one already

I'm a big fan of just about anything 6.5 but why would so many of you do a 6.5WSM over a 7WSM????

Wouldn't the 7WSM give you a little broader range????

Because it's just cooler!

OK, "cool" factor is ALWAYS important too.

I hate to admit it, but the "cool factor" wins ~ 90% of the time with me. I may not need it & I might not be able to afford it... but dang it, I want it!!! Not to mention the allure of the fire breathing, barrel eating, torpedo looking wildcat cartridge that make ALL the girlies go crazy... boo-ya!

Only boy on the block who has one.... Bet your 7wsm can't do that!! lol

I would try a 338 wsm just to be different. Which short action do you have? There is a bit of difference in internal mag length between the different manufacturers. It would be interesting just to see what speed you could push a 300gr hybrid.

I would go with the 7mm WSM, I think it would excel at the activities that you described.
