Shag,

The way I see it is the amount of abuse! Actually as you know when shooting at game it is amazing how recoil dissipates into the air unnoticed!
I have preference to the 7 MM Rem Mag. followed by the 300 Win Mag. and especialy referring to the game you mentioned. I use a 7MM Rem Mag in Texas for Deer and Pigs and love the caliber. Not to mention they both are flat shooters. But I have also found to save meat I shoot them about four inches farther back behind the front quarter where normally you would shoot. This so I do not tear up the good meat on the front quarter & leg area. It is devastating using a 150 grain and will totally turn the heart and lungs into mesh! Only had one run hardly at all and that was the 10 pt I shot this year due to the fact when I shot he had taken a step and I hit him a little farther back than intended. He ran 75 yards with his heart and lungs pulverised. Here is a picture of him.
Good luck when you make the selection.

I've shot my friends thompson center encore in the 7 rem mag and with his muzzle break it felt as light as my .223. It was fun to shoot, the only thing is I want a bolt gun over a single shot so any models in mind?

For what you're using it for, either one is overkill.

Shag,

There are a lot of great bolt guns out there. Mine happens to be a Remington CDL in the 7MM Rem. Mag. Honestly if I had the money to buy the rifle of my choice . I would want a SAKO. But there is Savage, CZ, Howa I understand is building good rifles. But I have no problem with my present fairly new CDL it shoots a respectable group of.471 at 100. Yes that is from a skinny barrel. I am use to heavy barreled tactical rifles so it's accuracy kind of took me by surprise!

That rifle is beautiful! I have one in .221 Fireball and it's one of my favorite long guns. It looks just like yours.

That is a pretty rifle. I like the 700 sps stainless I saw at bass pro but I'm able to get a tikka t3 at my work (academy sports) for 20% off its usual price. How are they?

Overkill?????? Not a chance they are great calibers read the entire thread, for deer, elk hogs ect. The 7mm, the 300 win mag, the 338 are very good, hard hittin calibers out here my shots are never less than 100 yards, an not to forget that buck or bull of a life time standing at 375 yards, yes I want that hard hittin fast flat shootin magnum

Shag,

Tikkas if I am not mistaken are made by SAKO?
