Re: long range

It all depends on the intended game. If you gave some more specifics you might get better answers.

Re: long range

If those are the 3 choices, I would pick the 308 win. Lots of bullets, good size of bullets, VERY accurate and very effective on deer sized game to 600+ yards. Easy to load for, lots of data and info...Low recoil, long bbl life. Did I mention accuracy?

Hope that helps

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

Re: long range

If you want to see some impressive results check out GoodGrouper's 6br tejas, I think that is what it is called. very little powder and great long range results. I don't know about it for real long range deer and other medium sized game unless your deer are as light as our deer are in Oklahoma.

Good Luck
Steve
