Re: Your Next Rifle Will Be In Which Cartridge

My hunting buddy has been hunting elk with his 280 for 20+ years with great success. His longest kill was 547yds witnessed by me. In all those years we have hand loaded for our specific rifles. Then we spend time out in the back country hiking to simulate hunting. We pick random targets out to 800yds an are allowed 2 shots to hit the target. Then the target is ranged. actual range data is dialed in and 1 shot taken. Great for preparing us for hunting season.

The 280 AI is a great choice. The 6.5-284 isn't to bad either. But barrel life can be the limiting factor. It's a poplar LR competition caliber. So you can't go wrong.

My next cartridge wasn't listed but will likely be a 260 or 7mm-08

The list was in good company with one another. Any one of those calibers would be a great choice. It comes down to the desire of the individual. I have to lean toward the 300 Win Mag.

Re: Your Next Rifle Will Be In Which Cartridge

Niles Coyote,
Both are good choices. The 260/6.5 has outstanding ballistics. I have a Rem700 Classic in 7-08. It's a great rifle. I know several guys that shoot both at the shilouette matches. They both out perform the 308s shooting at 500m. I shoot a 160gr Hornady SST and it slams the rams over everytime. The 260 is just as explosive. For some reason the 308s tend to push them over in slow motion.

For elk I still count on my 300WM.

Im going to try Armalite's ar-30 .338 lap. Neat gun and have heard good things about them.

From all the latest ones to come out I think the 300WSSM would be ideal for most of my hunting needs.
