    My son used the wife's Rem. 270 with great results as well using 150 grain bullets.

    I too shoot a Remington 700 in 7mm mag. Only gun I hunt big game with. I use 155 grain for everything. Killed a bull at 182yards in one shot. Taken 2 mulies and 2 antelopes as well, up to 300 yards, all single shot kills.

    The last 30 or so, almost exclusively 7 RM or 7-08.

    Mostly use the 7-08 these days.

    Putting my 6mm back together after I get it back from pacnor...I reckon it will see some elk action by this time next year.

    For straight up cool factor, the last elk I killed with a 30/06 was with my Dad's pre-64 model 70. My Grandfather, Dad, and I all have killed deer, elk and pronghorn in Montana with the same rifle...this elk completed the tri-fecta. My late Grandfather also shot a MT grizzly with it as well.

    Nice to see another 6mm Remington addict on here!! Mines in a Ruger 1B with a 6x42mm Leupold on it. Love that rifle and 100 gr. Nosler Partitions!!

    I have shot them with a few different rifles..7mm, 308, 300 Win Mag, and most recently 257 Weatherby. I think I will be carrying the 257 from here on out.

    Have used a 25-06, 260, 270, 7-08, 280, and 30-06 to take elk. Mostly a 270 or 280 of late. All worked very well.

    When I can draw a tag which isn’t very often I use a 300 rum cdl topped with vx1 4-12. When hunting dark timber I have a marlin 336 35 rem topped with 2-7 redfield. Just need a tag now!!!

    I've never shot an elk with a rifle, but if I did, I would use my Browning a-bolt in 300 Winchester

    Been shooting a 7 STW for about 23 years now in a Winchester sharpshooter built by HS shooting 160 accubonds.
    I'd say 90% of the critters I shoot with it drop dead in their tracks when I place m crosshairs center of shoulder.
