    I am seeing more 270 available in the stores right now where I live and it was my favorite hunting caliber. Recoil is lighter than the 06 which helps when you are getting old. By the way, Witches ride brooms.

    Lol my bad didn't notices that when I wrote it but anyways I have a 30-06 that I love it but its to heavy to walk around the woods all day with and recoil don't bother me much any more and where im at walmart has a shelf full of 7mmrm and they always have 300wm in stock plus I reload so finding ammo aint to big of a problem so what gun would you prefer to look at more then the others

    If I had to get a magnum, it would be a 300 or 7mm RUM.

    The RUM outperforms the the others by ac mile.

    800 bucks is the limit lol my mom has to replace my browning she traded when I was in California for 6 months long story sad ending if you want to know I will pm you. I was thinking about the 700 sps model 70 shadow or the savage 16/116 I want to keep the cost low so I can get a good quality scope for it two

    Better quality than remmy or savage?? NOPE NOT AT ALL its like this, ford, dodge ,chevy, gmc, or this winchester, remington, browning, marlin ,see where this is going. Its all in what u like an feels right to you. Im a true winchester collector ask marlinman what close numbers I have of winchesters. They are my drug of choice them an marlins.

    Yup what I like, or feel is the best is never for the most part gonna be the same as you. But im not one sided either except for ammo an optics, I feel that the big 5 gun names all strive to top one another an thats a win for us, it ensures that we 99.9% of the time will get a quality firearm.

    I put together a 7mm ultra a couple yrs ago with nightforce scope model 700 action, an its a real stomper way out west, been very fun playing with the lr style of shooting. The nightforce is just shy of perfect but it is far from a nice price shall we say. So for long range the 7mm has a very high bc an is near perfect for that app. If u plan on just a typical use gun then just grab a .300 win an dont look back or the ol 7mm will be great

    Also note that with a goodd recoil pad like a kick ease, an a muzzle brake, wa la you have the best 180$ ever spent on a belted magnum. Trust that. I choot a lotta rounds out of several big bores each an every week.

    Alright I think you and marlin talked me in to the 7mm mag it neck and neck with the 300 and it a little cheaper to reload

    The 7mm has been one hell of a elk slayer for my daughter untill she passed, I used he rifle this yr to hammer a colorado bull an a new mex bull. That was fun I had to add a limbsaver pad to get the lop a lil longer. Still to short so its getting retired.

    Let the mods begin!!!!! But trust me to be a true shooter one must shoot right??? Well the big mags bite real good after 40 or so rounds so the muzzle brake an pad are a god send.
