Re: Picking out my Christmas present.
Kind of a flip-the-coin type of situation. With the 300win mag you can save some cash and shoot heavy bullets waaaay over there.
If you go 7mm-300, you lose some barrel life but if you can shoot the 180VLD that really carries the mail a long distance.
you say you shoot 1k regularly. Do you want to be able to hunt at that range? deer? varmints? If the answer is deer, I would probably lean more towards the 300 although the 7mm 180VLD going fast would be hard to beat. Can't run the numbers on this computer.
I'm not gonna shoot here. I'm gonna shoot waaaaaaaay over there!
