just wondering which caliber you have and the reasons for picking it. i have had several 300wm's i am familar with this caliber. it will shoot to 1000 yards with accuracy and energy to take deer. and elk to 800 yards. i mainly long range for deer so it suits my needs. i have had opertunity for 300 rum. but it burns 20 grains more powder,is harder on the throat, and i alredy have a 300wm. whats your story?
