First I don't know how long that Zytel stock will last in that cartridge.
300 Win Mag?
Are you wanting to change cartridge and stay with 30 cal or a caliber change?
For deer, I would rather use a 6.5 or a 7mm myself.
How far do you want to be able to hunt?

When I say it is the original stock I mean the cheap light weight brown plastic one. I really would love to get this thing completely redone but have several things I can't decide online wether or not keep it center grip or go rear grip. I think I might like it better rear. Other deal is I have a few good smiths around here but don't know if they work on these. Anyway for now I have been wandering about changing to rifle scope but for out of a blind hunting didn't know if I'd end up hitting my face.
