So I'm looking at getting a magnum rifle for some longer shots that may come up in a few of the spots I hunt in Montana. And I was initially thinking I wanted a 300 Weatherby that I would build up a little, but the more I think the more ideas I have. I'm going to start reloading with the father in law shortly after my son is born so that should help with the cost of magnum ammunition. But what I'm thinking now is a 7mm rem mag, I haven't written of the 300 yet but the thought is kinda in the back of my mind. What I'm looking at is either a Weatherby Vanguard s1 or s2 doesn't matter to me, or maybe trying out the Remington 700 long range which would be the upper limits of my budget come October, even though I wouldn't use it till the 2016 season allowing time for glass and load development and maybe a few upgrades along the way. I like the idea of a 26" barrel for more open country/ mountain meadows, where as my 270 would get the call for thicker areas. so between the 700 long range or a vanguard what would be better route? Any other suggestions would be welcome.
