6MM rem
6.5 x 284 semi custum never shot, built on jap Ariska action, pencil for a barrel
Custom 7mm Rem mag getting set up for long range
308's one set up for long range shooting

    A magnum 30 is an absolute must in any collection.
    300WSM
    300Win
    300Wby
    300RUM
    All are great choices. & all can fit the bill for most any situation in N. America.
    A 338Win, or a 375 of some kind would be tied for my # 2 choice with the cartridges you already own.
