I just came back from Craig, Colorado on an Elk hunting trip
. I hunt in Georgia with a 30-06 and a BAR 270. I took my 30-06 and the second day I was out there in CO, I took a 395 yard shot at my trophy Elk
My question is, I am going back out west here in a few weeks and want to get some advice from the experts here on this board.
I am going to buy a new gun dedicated to "out west hunting" and wanted to know should I go with the 300wsm, 7mm or 300 win?
I am going to go with the Browning A-Bolt Stalker - what caliber would everybody suggest? 500 - 750 yards top!
Also, some good scope suggestions. I am using a Nikon 3x9x40 here in Georgia, but need more out west.
Thanks for the suggestions. I just want to buy the right gun in the first place and not have second thoughts with people telling me "you should have bought this..."
