    Most guys are kinda recoil adverse, that said though I like the RUM option the 30 Nosler or a long throated 300 Win set up for 190-210’s seems perfect.

    .300 Win Mag or .300 Weatherby. Either one of them
    has piled up enough game to fill lake Erie.

    I have had several 30 caliber rifles, from the 300 WSM to the 30-378 and loved them all. The 300 WSM makes a great lightweight mountain rifle shooting 150 grain bullets.
    Just got a 300 PRC but haven't had enough time to tell if I'm going to like it, love it or hate it. Good luck with your build.

    If you go 300 WSM, I would not do a short action. With short action, it may be difficult to seat bullets (off the lands) for best accuracy and still use the mag...just a comment based on my experience.

    A long action throated correctly 300wsm with 215 Berger's would be great set up. I'd suggest looking into a Tikka with Mountain Tactical's new billet long action mag's for WSM.

    Another vote for the .300 Weatherby.

    My go to rifle for 20 yrs has been a 300 wsm. Things just die in front of it. I shoot 168 barnes ttsx at 3260 out of 26 in benchmark barrel, win short action, shoots about .6 to .7 moa with the barnes seated 50 thou off lands.
    U didnt state if this was hunting or comp rifle. I assumed hunting because you want light wt. I have most all the big boys. Wouldnt want i. Sub 8 lb package. Dont love brake on hunting rifles for noise and, they add wt. Have shot deer by the dozens, bear about 20, elk, many many like 50 head of african game including blue wildebeast which are tough, 3 big eland bulls, about 15 kudu. Out to 550 yds . With a zeiss conguest 4.5-14 x 44 , sling, weighs right at 8 lbs. With proof wrapped barrel your should be lighter.
