i would like to get my first custom big game rifle and dont know which way to go? I mainly hunt Moose and Black bear from ranges as close as 50 yards (but i have a 300. wsm for that) and had shot opportunities all the way out too 1200 yards! i have only practiced out too 600 as for i dont think my 300 wsm has much more in it past that for the animals im going after. As of this year and multiple following years to come, i will be hunting elk and whitetail as well down in montana. i would like to have my 300 as the light carry around and something for long range shots! I was strongly looking at a 300. RUM but some people told me its too close to my gun it wont give me that much more yardage, only like 200 yards more. I was then thinking of a 338 such as a 338 edge, or 338 RUM or 338 Lapua. I would like to hear some recommendations on a caliber please? any suggestions. i know i need to do a lot more practicing and i will! i love playing at the range, but i am extremely interested in long range hunting as well. any suggestions would be wonderful!
