OK here is where I am .................... Yea I started out looking at 300weatherbys then went to 300rum then talked (almost) into a custom 7mm then another thread I read on here says big 338's oh I also looked at 338winmag. I am using this for elk only most likely 600-700yds with conditions and factors all being right. I have heard every thing from small fast with lots of spin to big and fast. I only have around 1K to put into the rifle as I will be putting a nightforce scope on it. All help is much appreciated. Choises 7mm wsm custom rayhill, 300rum savage factory, 338 winmag savage factory. or any others you could suggest for under $1000.
