    Yeah my wallets already a bit soggy lol. I've got a Mauser 98 that's rebarrled for .300 win mag. For right now I'm looking at just paper a steal punching till I can build my skills up. As of now my longest kill was a cow elk at about 175 (child's play I know) but I've shot some targets at about 400. I'm also having a semi custom built. It's going to be a .264 win mag 26 in PAC-NOR tube on a McMillan a5.

    A 30 cal magnum and a 6.5mm magnum...good choices. For both of them you will be able to get high BC bullets and shoot them really far.

    For your 300....

    For your 6.5mm.....

    While you would be able to get the 168 screaming downrange, take a good look a the 215hybrid. With a BC of .696 its exterior ballistics will be outstanding as the distances get farther.
