hello, my wife has been hunting for a while and starting to target shoot out at longer ranges now and wants to have a rifle put together so that someday she can hunt at longer ranges. she has know clue what she wants she just told me to pick something. well i have a new savage action 110 action sitting around collecting dust so i figured i would throw one together for her. she's been target shooting now with my 6mm br at 600 yards and doing well,so long as she keeps shooting the way she is i would like or her to have a rifle with enough power to take a elk at the same range. she has hunted with my 30-06 with 150 hand loads but i dont know if she would want to practice with that much recoil. issues are: her being a texas girl she has know clue how much walking will be required hunting in colorado where we now live, so i would like to make the rifle as light as i can but with out kicking the crap out of her. also i would like to keep with the 30-06 bolt face. the only cartridges i can think of are: 280 rem or AI 6.5X284 any other ideas? or better yet anybody got any field time with the ones above?
