The 338wm is a fine caliber for that range and target. There are many calibers that will work out to 600 yrds. I am not so sure you have to look at a magnum for this kind of range. A 30-06 loaded correctly would do nicely.

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
