I'm building a new medium weight hunting rifle for everything from rockchucks to elk. This will not be a high volume rifle for the varmint end nor long range for the elk, but do want to go to 600+ on deer size game. I am building it on a Remington 700 left hand long action with a .473 bolt and as such I want to stay with one of the folowing calibers: 30-06, 280Rem, 6.5-06. I have a McMillan
Edge stock. I will have a 23" #3 or #4 barrel plus a brake. My thoughts on the calibers, 30-06 for nostalga, the 6.5-06 'cause I have a ton of bullets, the 280? Don't know about this one but it seems like a good compromise..
