Muliemaster- i think so too

Jpattersonnh- You have given me a lot of info. The longest i've ever went with a 300 win mag was on a 8 point buck last white tail season. i shot it from 750 yards...i had a perfect shot placement, the buck ran for about 10-15 yards and dropped(i still think i got a lil lucky that day). However, i still got a 30 minute "fun" talk from my dad and grandpa. I just like to be ready for long shots, so i practice at the range for around 1000 yards. But you are right an ethical shot shouldn't ever be more than 500yards. Thank you for the info!
Holy crap do you have any vids of your long shots? I'd love to watch it.
