    Hunlee,
    I pm'd you some suggestions on calibers.

    I wouldn't want to use a 6mm out to 300 yards for deer size game. You can get some heavy bullets but it just wouldn't have enough punch for my use. Would probably be OK for Antelope as they are not hard to put down. Wind drift would be an issue though.

    A 7x30 Waters would get you out to 200 maybe even to 250.

    You might want to consider moving up to an Encore. Then you will have a lot more choices in calibers that can reach to 300.

    Yote,
    I think the 7 Bellm would work fine. You could probably stretch it out to 300 using the 120's.
