The reason I went 30-06 was because of versatility ( it can take any game in US) as well as availability of ammo. I shoot a Remington 700 w Nikon Buckmaster optics. Solid platform IMHO
two come to mind that would be excellent considerations for you. the 25-06 and the 7mm-08. both are flat shooting, make excellent mid-range target rounds and could be used for hunting as well. i warn you on the 7mm-08, that once you own one and start shooting it, it will be addictive! my 7mm-08 is one of my most shot rifles that i own.
