Heavy 7mm and .264" have great BC's as well, but there little smaller diameter limits there use on bigger game at LR. I like 7mm's for deer, I dont think theres much better. However, for LR critters bigger then deer, I like the .30 cal. My dad is going to be building a .338 EDGE so will be playing with the .338" cal and 300g SMK. I like to think if a bullet has a BC of .6 or greater, it can be classified as a LR bullet. Theres lots of them out there.
