    If I had to do it over again with just ONE cartridge, Id choose the 300 H&H.

    I already have one in #1, amongst many 700 action rifles...
    For some reason, the classic feel of this round gets me every time I crack open my ammo boxes for it.. Norma brass and a stiff charge of RL19 with a 168 CT.
    for a stock Ruger # 1 Medium Sporter chambered in that round--- she does under 3/4 moa-- rain or shine. I can't complain about that.

    my next Rifle looks like another barrel on my .308 along with a new stock.
    unless I pull the barrel on my 7MAG and make a target/tactical rifle in the A5 theme.

    I just bought a used custom build in 7RUM. Now I have to buy a scope for it, and head out to the range!

    For hunting deer and elk out to 500 yards, I dont see what you get out of the 6.5x284 that you cant get out of a .270 win. 24 inch barrel both guns, 140gr vld, I know bc is a bit better in the 6.5, but at 500 yards, come on.....
