I am going elk hunting in Colorado this fall. I currently shoot a 280 rem. and I can also use my dads 30-06 and I will use one of them this year. Sometime down the road I would like move to something with a little more power maybe a 7mm rem mag. I like some other suggestions, I like the 300 win mag, but I hate to buy one because my dad has one and one day he will give to me and I hate to wind up with two.
