I am new to posting on the forums, but have been doing a lot of reading as of late. Here is a little about myself before I pose my question(s). I have been shooting long range for the last 14 years with a Savage in .308. It does have a good bit of custom work done to it and I have been very please with it. I have started to notice a loss of accuracy and some vertical stringing. The rifle has 8,120 rounds through this barrel. I have several what I think are long range kills on whitetail deer(450+) and varmits (800+) with it and shoot out to 1000 yards on a regular basis. I am going to have a new rifle built I am just not sure what caliber. Here is what I am looking for; able to take deer sized animals to 800 yards; something I could use to hunt elk and antelope with if I choose to (never done that before). I have been thinking about a 7WSM. I like the the newer high BC bullets and the fact I can reload a vast range of bullets for; it is short action; and has been getting good reports from hunters and bench shooter alike. I do not like the fact that if ever needed there is not a lot of factory ammunition out there for it. I am however very open minded and open to any and all suggetions. This will be my one rifle that I will spend hours with, that I will learn and I will use for just about all of my hunting and target shooting needs. If you have any build and/or builder suggestions I am open as well. I am very interested into what your caliber suggestons will be. Thank you for your help and suggestions. I have really enjoyed the reading and learning I have done on the forums in the past few weeks.
