A 300 Weatherby is a great choice for everything you mentioned to hunt.

    If I were you I'd go for a 8mm RemMag. Perfect performance from deer up to moose/ dangerous game out to distancies of 1k.

    I think I will end up with the 338WM.

    It will probably come down to either a Remington 700 or Winchester M70? Any clear cut winner over these two models?

    Rem 700 in 7mm STW shooting Berger 180 Hybrids. It'll kill anything on the planet very effectively.

    .300 WSM, Win, Wby, Dakota, RUM. 200 Accubond. 338's better for moose and brown bear. Compromises...

    I prefer the 20" barrels up here. Also I would like to say that I think you are hard pressed to go with a better cartridge/ caliber than the 338 Win mag, with a quality hunting bullet.
