I would also consider a 280 AI.
The 7mm has the best selection of bullets and recoil is not an issue with the 280.
In these parts it is the favorite F Class cartrige at 600 and 1000 yards.
It can be loaded with 90 grain bullets to 190 grain bullets, Giving it an impressive
all round use.
It is very capable of clean one shot Elk kills with 160+ grain bullets and with the lighter bullets
it makes a great deer cartrige.
For targets the 150, 160 and 168 grain bullets are very accurate.
Just another option
