Re: buying new rifle

What kind of deer, and what are the realistic distances? What do you mean by big game?

If you are worried about flinch then forget the ultra mags. Stay with something that will allow the lighter bullets but can go up to the 168/180 range LR knockdown.

Look at the 7WSM. One just shot a 6 " and 4" 5 shot group in "Factory Class" in NC last week. Does not get any better than that and recoil will not kill you.

Re: buying new rifle

Thanks for the replies. By big game I ment, caribou, elk, moose,etc..., and the type of deer I was refering to was white tail.

At this time I'm leaning towards the 7mm mag, nice flat shooter with plenty of variations in load
