rifle question

a sendero with a very good scope is a good place to start. they are accurate and the fluted ones are fairly "light" to carry. the 7mm mag is a very good round. once you practice at 500,600 ; 700 you will find what is reasonable.

Thanks guys, but with all the advice, I still need to do more research. Buffalobob, the 7mag cal. selection is actually based on a couple of things, one, is that i have found it to do alot less meat damage at closer ranges than my .300wsm (which tears stuff up, although it may have been the bullets i was using) Scince this rifle would be used for shots from 30-1000yds (my goal) I am open to suggestions, and willing to learn about other cals as well. I have done alot of hunting and shooting with the 30-06 and am really comfortable shooting out to 400 with it, but beyond that, the drop gets a little extreme, and I am not sure of how much damage a 150 grn pill will do. I am looking into the .300 7mm rum's but I have little experiance with these rounds.( not that I am afraid to try them, just don't know them.) Thanks again. The advice you guys have given has given me alot to think about.
