    I've used a 7mm Wby Mag and a 7mm Rem Mag, both are really good. I've made 5 consecutive one shot kills with the 7mm Rem mag. I switched to the sendero barrell in 2006, the accuracy is just too much too ignore. Plus, if you are ever in a bind, it would be much easier to find a box of 7mm Rem Mag ammo.

    As far as the .300 Mags are concerned, great guns no doubt. However, I've shot and hunted with a .300 Wby Mag, the extra kick is pretty obvious. If you are a big dude, then it isn't as much a factor. However, for lighter folks, it can rock you pretty good. I think it can have an impact on accuracy. I've never noticed the recoil from the 7mm's.

    Not with a good muzzlebreak! My .300 Wby doesn't kick as much as my .25-06. Pretty noisy, but recoil is real low.

    I guess if I was going to own just one rifle, I would have a 7mm rem. mag.

    Thanks, Colorado Cowboy and Bitterroot Bulls. I will see what I can work up for my .300 Wby. As far as recoil, I am impressed at how mild it is, I was expecting alot more. I have only shot Wby 180 gr. factory loads so far but what a smooth shooter! My 30-06 is a Win. model 70 featherweight and it kicks more.

    Most Weatherby rifles in 300 Wby. are a little bit heavier guns. A heavy gun tames recoil pretty nicely. My Remington Sendero 300 RUM is a pussycat to shoot.

    It seems like Weatherby rifles with their monte carlo stocks also make recoil a little easier to take for a lot of people.

    In my opinion, the most versatile would be the 338 Win.

    I have a 7 Mag and am perfectly happy with it. However, if you're talking most versatile I would have to say one of the .30 calibers - probably 300 Win. Especially if you're a reloader, the range of bullets available is just much greater than a 7mm.

    I just don't anticipate hunting anything that would call for more than my 7 Mag - at least any time soon. If that time does come I'll have an excuse to get another rifle!

    30-06 with either a 180 gr. Partition or Accubond. Possibly a 300 WSM with same bullets. My picks anyway.

    My vote is for the 30.06 or the 7mm.

    I've got a 270win and a 300win mag. Not being a big feller the 300 kicks a bit much for myself, and the 270 is a great gun. With a Barnes brass 150 gr tip it's enough medicine for elk or moose but that's as high as she would go IMO.
