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

JMHO, but I think if it is going to be on the list of the most popular it should be a factory chambered cartidge.

270 win
30-06
7 RM
300 Wm
300 RUM
300WSM (had to list it cuz it's the one I now love )
280 rem

I can't speak for the other area's but these seem to be the MOST POPULAR ones in this area for people who will shoot past 300 yards. (long range is kinda subjective to area lol)

as opposed to the BEST LR cartridges.

    The one's I picked are not necessarily the best ones, but the ones that seem to be the most "popular".

    Agreed. That's why I said I wanted to put those AM's on there. In terms of sheer numbers out there I think your list is very complete. I just think the ballistics of those AM's deserve more mention . If it were best long range calibers, they would surely deserve to be included.

    I really only have two favorites, the 338 (of course) and the 7 WSM. Montana riflemans list looks good.

    OK! We are ready to start the poll. This thread was for the purpose of helping me narrow down the candidates for an actual poll.

    So now you can go to this thread to take part in the poll.

    LINK TO POLL: If you had to start all over with currently having no big game rifles, in which of these cartridges would you chamber your next big game rifle?

    And may the best cartridge win!
