Re: Need A little help

Send the encore barrel to Kirby Allen or Shawn and have them put one of the brakes they designed and it will kick about the same as you 30-06 with 150 gr. bullets.
You should get good groups with it if the Encore is tuned up with the trigger reworked.

The 300 will work great for the elk and whitetail if you can get the accuracy tightened up.

Good shooting.

Re: Need A little help

i have guided guys to 28 elk and nine of my own. i shot a 6X6 last year with a 30-06 180 federal high energy 180 partitions ( 2890fps! the 180 factory triple shocks out of my 300 sendero only got 3002 fps).** either the 30-06 or the 300 will be fine. i would not shoot the 300 without a brake
