I can't find the need for the 30-378. I looked at it a long time ago but met a shooter coming out of the gun shop. I ask how the 30-378 was working? He showed me hiss new gun, it was a 257 wby, said the 30-378 was to big for him and he shoots a lot and weighs about 300 young pounds. I dropped the idea o shooting a 30-378. Still ok with 7rm but will look at the 280AI. BTW, I don't care what you shoot. The post was about best one gun. If its good enough for women and kids to hunt elk with, why not men?
