The 338wm is a fine caliber for that range and target. There are many calibers that will work out to 600 yrds. I am not so sure you have to look at a magnum for this kind of range. A 30-06 loaded correctly would do nicely.

Why not a 264 win mag? Plenty flat shooting and a good long range deer caliber.
