i have a M700 in 7mm Rem. Mag. and it's one of my favorite rifles. now unless you reload, in which i use slower burning powders that help with felt recoil, and you would be using factory ammo, i would suggest the 30-06.
with a 30-06 and the factory ammo selection that is available, you can hunt just about anything in North America with it.
personally i just happen to like rifles in the 7mm caliber is the reason i have mine. most all my rifles are somewhat projects and are constanly being tinkered with for accuracy. i also reload for all of my rifle calibers.
