TBP, "REQUIREMENT" what ever you get, make sure to put a LimbSaver buttpad on it. My .243 Rem 700 had the Rem version so I did not have to get one.
Good luck

Re: Low Recoil Rounds Sutiable for Elk

Elk caliber rifle (my braked .300 Win Mags and .338 Win Mag felt recoil are similar to that off .243 and .308 respectively)

+

effective muzzle brake (muscle, PK, DE, Holland's, etc ...)

+

recoil pad (limbsaver)

+



(Optional for extra measures)

Happy safe hunting/shooting and enjoy your time with your Dad. Good luck!

Re: Low Recoil Rounds Sutiable for Elk

In Sweden and Norway they shoot moose with the 6.5x55, same as 260 rem. It is the most used cartridge. A light bolt action 260 or 7-08 with a good bullet will work just fine on elk to 300 yards and is a dream to carry in the mountains.

Re: Low Recoil Rounds Sutiable for Elk

I want to thank everyone for your replies and input, and after a lot of debate I'm leaning towards a rifle chambering 7mm-08. I'm also considering putting a muzzle brake on this rifle but that may be overkill.

Again, Thank you all!

Tom
