So what's next?

Looking for some input on filling a gap. What caliber - deer, antelope + coyotes.

Here's what I have:
DE 338rum - 26" #5 barrel w/brake
Center Shot Rifle 300 win 26" #5 barrel
Center Shot Rifle 223 26"#7 barrel

Lookin for something between the 300win and the 223.

Thoughts?

    6mm br, 8 twist and 107 SMK's. Use it for everything from gophers to small deer.

    I'd go with a 7mm. Probably a wsm or a .284 win.

    270WSM.
    Besides, the 404 parent case IS what the -06 case used to be 50+ yrs ago, Take your RUM as an example.
    I love my WSM, and my WSSM's.
    Good luck with your choice, its a wonderfull quandry to be in isnt it.. (deciding whats next).

    Don't forget the 260. A couple more gun makers are offering it as a standard caliber again. Brass is available, as well as fairly decent factory loads.
