I hate to post this, cause it's probably been beaten to death, but I was decided on a 7mm Allen Mag, but just can't put my money into that right now.
So, now after having my dreams of a big 7mm dashed by prioritys, I'm looking for something else.
I reload, so any caliber is game. I would like to spend around 1K for the gun. Heard a lot about 300 WSM
, sounds decent. What about the classic 30-378?, let me know what you think...
thanks guys, sorry fiftydriver....I will miss your allen mag......for now.

Since this is a dedicated "long range" elk gun I would put the minimum at an 8mm Rem Mag.
Ideally a 338 Lapua or 338-378 Weatherby.
I went with the 338 Lapua which I built on a Ruger #1.
Nearly lost a Bull this year a friend shot with a 300 Win Mag and 180 gr failsafes, no blood trail.
