I am going to have a rifle built for me. I am having a hard time deciding on having it built in 280 rem or 300 win mag. I have shot and owned several 300s but about a year ago I started shooting a 280. I have been using a 140g bullet and I have had great results with accuracy. I am going to use this new rifle for general hunting. I will use it in the midwest for Whitetail and out west for Mule Deer and Elk. I am not looking to use it for Moose or Bear. I already have a rifle that I am pleased with for larger game. I really would like to keep the weight down and I can save a little weight with the 280. Not much but a little. On top of all of this I have really caught the long range bug. I think I can do a better job overall with the 300 win mag but I really find the 280 to be interesting. Please let me know what you think. Thanks in advance for your help.
