Hi everyone I'm new here, Just got asked to go "ELK" hunting here in NV. I was told I need to get a "Accurate" gun for at least 500Yards shots. It also needs to be a big enough round to produce a "One" shot kill. I'm handicapped by having 5 bad disks in spine from accident and a messed up hand, (some fingers amputated on left hand) I was told that I need to get a 7mm-Mag or Larger Cal. to perform best. I have been told that the 300-Mag is the best cal for what I'm looking for... What are your thought on that as well as, I have been looking for the "LOWEST" Recoil accurate gun to fit the bill... I've looked at semi-auto that supposed to have low recoil stocks, (Like Benelli-R1) but many say they are not accurate at all over 100yards... So, many have suggested the Savage-110BA as the perfect gun for me. What are you thoughts on that, or is there any other guns out there that would have less "recoil" in the 300-Mag and be as or better in accuracy and Price? If that is the gun for me, what would you recommend to reduce the recoil even more than what comes with it? I'm also looking at putting a "Burris" Eliminator 3 scope on it to do all the wind and drop calculations for me... As I want a one shot, one kill, as always... I used to shoot out to 600+yards years ago all the time with a 7mm-Mag Rem. But sold it many years ago, because all of the places I hunted went to Shotgun only and I didn't like that it kept taking longer and longer to recover from a day of shooting. I've hunted for over 45+years!! I now have a bolt in shoulder with arthritis and can't take the punishment I used to inflict... I seem ok with the Savage 110BA if I can handle the recoil as the weight shouldn't be much of a factor as I'm 6'1 270LBs and have a Polaris Ranger "Crew" 6-person Quad that will carry My guide & me and my equipment 99% of the way... I just need something I can fire at least 5-10 rounds a week to choose the right ammo for that gun, and to season the barrel without messing up my shoulder, and then maybe 10-20 rounds a week just before Hunting season to be able to judge the wind properly and to get the scope dialed in with the right ammo... Also if there is anyone anywhere near the LasVegas area that has one that is willing to let me try it to see if I can shoot it at all, so I don't spend over $3,000.00 on a gun I can't shoot... )) That would be "Great"... Please let me know... (I'll pay for Gas & Ammo) I can't wait for your thoughts and responce's!!!
