Re: Help on long range caliber?

I pretty much agree with LTLR.

If you want something more capable than your .280AI and didn't want to jump to the .338 then you could go with one of the big 7mm's and shoot heavy bullets well over 3000fps.

    I would recommend making your 280 AI your dedicated deer rifle because it is very capable with the higher BC 7mm bullets to 750 yards. I would pick a 300 Ultra or even a 338 ultra and make it dedicated elk rifle for the occasional elk hunt.
