First post, long time reader. Just a general question. I have an encore in 300 mag that shoots great with handloads. She has .25 in of freebore and I can seat the bullets long. Accuracy is 1.25-1.5" at 200. This hot load is with a 200 accubond and H1000. I also have a .308 in a bolt action that shoots 1.4" at 200 with 165 SST and varget. Of course I'll change the bullet for elk if I go that route. I'm going to Colorado in 2015 for my first elk hunt and would like an opinion on if a bolt action would provide any real benefit. I'd like to take the encore as the 300 has more authority. Thoughts?
