First of all, welcome to LongRangeHunting.

You will have a lot more responses to your question if you post it in the General forum. Not everybody reads the Members Intro forum. ready for a lot of suggestions and opinions about a long range elk or bear cartridge/load combo.:)
take a look at any of the 300-338 mags. and head out to Mica to get some LR practice. I built a 6.5 284 and it's a great LR gun but I think it's a little light for what you want to do.
