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

+1, although my heart wants to put an Allen mag or two on there (338 AM, 7mm AM).
