6.5x 284 personal preference, i don't really care for 300 win mag,but then 7mm ultra 7mm stw 7mm rem mag will anchor any deer out there at 600 yards. i guess the appropriate ? is are you only going to use this for deer or are u planning to use it on bigger game as well. that would be my determining factor.

Well the 300 will certainly do the job at 600 yds, however you'll be taking more of a beating than you need to.

If you truely intend to stay inside 600 yds you can get it done with a 260, 7-08, 308. If you think you'll be stretching things after a while then you may want to look at the .270, 30-06, or the 270/7mm WSMs. All of these will be kinder to the shoulder than the 300WM.

On the other hand, if you really want the 300, by all means get one.

Re: 600 yard deer rifle

Well i thank you for your in put.And yes will also be doing some blackbare hunting to.I wouldn't mind a 308 win but people have been telling me that it's not a good bear gun.I do shoot off a ridge over looking a 200 yard wide by 700 yards long clear cut between two swamps.Do you think that a 308 will pack a enough punch to take a bear at that range??

Excellent choice! I am a big fan of the .300 WM ... and have 2 shooters (SAKOM995 and Savage 111F). Check out the new Savage ...

Savage Arms Model 10FP

Good luck!

Re: 600 yard deer rifle

Well.......If were going to add bear and stretch things to 700 yds, I personally would go a little bigger than the 308 case. Something on the 06 or WSM case, I still don't think your in the "need a 300WM" range, getting closer though

Re: 600 yard deer rifle

Chris thank you for your input.But I will Not 700 yards because after 630 yards it's noting but swamp bogs and it starts geting thick with slashings .And the one thing that i want in the rifle is that it's going to drop them..So what do you think about a 300 wsm??.is the 300 win mag the same as the 300 wsm??.sorry about the dumb ? but I dont know the difference
