7mmWSM : Is it enough?

I am a greenhorn at this. Age and preference seems to be telling me to go long. I recently purchased a Winchester Coyote in 7mm WSM. I dressed it with a 6X24 target scope, had a muzzle break installed and some trigger work done. It shoots on average less than 2" @ 300 yards. Am I asking to much to think that this could be used on deer out to 800 yards? Please don't laugh! I am willing to listen.[LIST]

Re: 7mmWSM : Is it enough?

Thanks to you 338-378. I reload most of my own ammo and am just getting started on this particular caliber. I think I can better the 2" groups @ 300 yds and am excited to be working up my first click chart in my 40 years of shooting.
