Ok guys, trying to decide what to do with my Rem 700 300RUM. I was going to go with the 7mm AM, but now am not sure. I built my 300 RUM put a brake on it, trigger job, nightforce and started shooting, but am not getting it to shoot up to my expectations. I want a carry weight(10-12lbs if possible) 1000-1500yd gun. I will use this for elk and deer. If I went with the 7mm AM I would shoot the 200gr wildcat's, would those be alright for LR elk? Would like to keep barrel length to around 28" Also was wondering about those carbon barrels, if people are having good luck with them? I was pretty sure about kirby's 7mm AM, but now I've been reading about the edge, some good .30's, and I'm just about at ground zero for what to do. I wanted to get this action out soon, so I can get it back sometime in spring if that is an option, so any input would be great. I've got a lot of new Federal 300 rum brass, so I don't know if that would help with the decision at all. I just don't have a cartridge that really sticks out to me, maybe I should just have it rebuilt with the 300 RUM again, but something different sounds fun /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif so once again, any input would be greatly appreciated!
