I appreciate that, not my first choice either. But, I will share with you my experience in Africa. Limited to two guns, I took a 300Win Mag..... and a 6MM Remington, which I intended to use on caracal and jackal. Guess what? I didn't kill a single animal with the 300. Yes, the 6MM is a little light for mule deer, but I one shot a Kudu, easily as big as our elk, with the 6mm/100 gr. Sierra. And African game is as tough as they say it is; didn't have a single "bang/flop" but they were all one shot kills. Guess what my PH has? A 260, used for culling warthog and kudu.
I know it won't change your mind, but (still) food for thought.
Good luck with your choice. LB
