338 will hit the hardest, 308 would have better accuracy potential. Both would be accurate enough and hard hitting enough for deer to 300 yards.

Which one is the sexiest to you? Go with that one!

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

Re: best caliber

you should post this in the "specialty handguns" section. there are several on there that know quite a bit about shooting a pistol with a 15" barrel. deer can be killed a whole bunch farther than 300 with a pistol.
