Add the desc implies I have been looking for a 270 preferably but also at 30-06. Anyhow I just got word from a friend that he found a savage 7mm( not sure even of the options other than an -08) for 300 with scope. Can anyone tell me how is anno availability for these and how it compares to a .270. My goal in this search is a gun I can shot long(er) ranges with and be able to kill pretty much any game I encounter. I really want to goop elk hunting eventually. I have a 223 that I can plink out to 500 with so I want to add one bigger to the collection. Thanks guys I found its a 7mm magnum!
