As from my previous post, i have put money down on a remington 700 ss 5r in 300 win mag. I plan to hunt with this gun, but not more 500 yds max range. Is it too much gun for whitetail between the ranges of 50 to the 500 yd max? I may be able to get the same gun in .308 (possibly, havent asked of they can get it yet) I am strongly considering a .308 or 7MM 08 because I will mainly deer hunt with this gun. From reading in these forums, it seems the 5r likes heavier bullets...say 175 and up. Just my opinion but I feel its a bit too much gun for what i need.
