    Deerhntr71,

    Between the two cartridges, I'd go with the 7MM Rem Mag. I own a 24" barreled Sako AV 7MM Rem Mag. Last Sept I put a 160 grain Partition through-and-through a 900+ pound 7x7 bull elk,...

    September 16-25.

    Have you figured out how you're going to move 2 bulls out five miles? Elk are huge.

    160 Partitions shoot very good out of my 7MM Rem Mag. And they will kill huge elk.

    Sako makes excellent rifles. But so do a lot of other manufacturers. More often than not, it boils down to preference.
