    They both will get the job done as said. Which ever one you shoot the best, take it. Take a little test. Have one of you buddies there, close you eyes and have them hand you one of them, then the other. Keep you eyes closed, which one is the most comfortable. Take it and shoot it and then shoot it some more. I think you will have your answer.

    I've got both, in Remington 700's. I use the .300 Win Mag for Elk & the 7mm Rem Mag for Mule Deer. I also have a 700 in a 25-06 for antelope!

    Doesn't matter, I think the 300wm is the most versatile cartridge on the planet though.

    How often are you going after elk size game or bigger? I would have no problem taking anything with my 7mm Rem mag; except a very large bear. Either one will harvest an elk. Pick one and put good optics/rings on it and hit the range.

    What do you plan on hunting? Do you already have both of those or are you buying another gun?

The other one's got a rattlesnake With a simple statement made "Don't tread on me" is what it says and I'll take that to my grave. Because this is me. I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I've said it before but I'll say it again 'Cause my family's always fought and died to save this land. And a country boy is all I'll ever be."

    I have a 7 mag that I love and normally shoot 150g bullet. I have a .300 that a friend loaned me to shoot. I just want enough knock down power.
