Re: Need help
.300 WM, as there is a better selection of long range bullets available. Recoil is mild enough to allow you to enjoy using it without having to hang on for grim death. And you will deliver more killing energy way out yonder. I enjoy my .270's too but the .300 WM will outperform them at longer distances.
For hunting, it's worth a look at different brands of european scopes as their superior optics are invaluable in poor light. Prices are very reasonable at the moment.
