    Re: What are the most popular LONG RANGE big game cartridges?

    For long range big game hunting my guess would be

    300rum
    300win
    300wsm
    7stw
    338lapua
    7mmwsm
    6.5x284
    .243ackly or another pretty hot 6mm
    338ultra
    7mm ultra

    there may be better cartridges but these would be my top ten guess for popularity
