That said, I highly recommend the .300 Win Mag.

Good luck!
At sub 800yds ranges there's just nothing you can't do very well with the 300wm and 7mm mag.

This coming from a guy who currently owns 2 300RUM's, 3 300wm's, and 2 7mmSTW's along with 1ea 264wm and one 260 Rem.

Out to 500yds there's nothing you can't do with authority and complete confidence with either the 7mm mag or 300wm.

    Thanks for everyone's information and opinions, I think I am going to look more into the 7mag Sendero and see how things go. Thanks again.

    I totally agree but as noted in my original response, my personal preference is the .300 WM -- my "go to" gun/caliber for the last 30+ years.

    I personally like the way the 30 cal performs on game better than the 7mm. There are lots of bullet choices for both, but as a general rule I am not a fan of 7mm on game performance.

    Not looking for a fight, just felt like I should give my opinion.
