Re: 270 WSM or 7mm rem mag
Thanks, Ric for the info.....I definitely understand that a heavier bullet will aid in killing power (along with a number of other variables). However, I'm just thinking that buying the 300wsm would be massive overkill for the deer. Keep in mind that this is coming from a bowhunter, so I have always been of the mind that accuracy is paramount, and power has been more or less a constant. Popularity/availability of the 7mm rem mag also seems to be greater, although that may be changing. Maybe I was being optimistic in thinking that I could load up the 7 mag with a 175-180 grain bullet and take down an elk. However, I still believe that I would be more accurate with more manageable recoil, therefore a better choice would still be between the 7 mm rem mag and something more manageable. Maybe a 308 or 7mm-08 would make sense? Maybe I'm just thinking too much ( or maybe not at all)! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
