    I had a rem 700 30/06 re-barrelled it to 7mm rem mag. There is no way I would go back!
    The 7mm mag will get it done so much easier, better velocity, better BC, way less windage.
    My longest shot with the 30/06 was 475 yds, dropped the stag but it got up and I never saw it again, no blood trail nothing. Searched for hours with my dog. no-luck.
    With my 7mm mag and 162 a-max or 168 berger I have taken numerous game (deer sized) from 358 yd to 638 yds and never lost an animal. I use the 160 accubond inside 300 yds, it works well.

    Go with the 7mm mag and don't look back.

    Stu.

    I am pretty sure there is no such thing as a 160 Balistic tip. There is 165 gr in .308 and a 150 grain in the 7mm. I WISH there was a 160 + gr balistic tip in .284!!!

    A 160 Accu Bond will work better.
    So far the 7mm RM has been all the hammer I need for deer and elk at medium ranges (500 to 700 yds).

    I agree with the others, 7Mag. I use the 150gn Ballistic Tip and would not hesitate to unleash it on a deer at even further distances than you discussed. I've shot this bullet from day one (15 years ago) and know it intimately. There is currently only a 140 and 160gn AccuBond for the 7mm. The Ballistic Tip's can be had in 120, 140 and 150. JohnnyK.

    Kind of off topic, but....with all of the big boomer 7mm's out there....don't you think a 160+ gr NBT would sell. I would buy them in a heartbeat!!!!
