    The 6 CDMR with a 7-35 FFP optic for long distance plinking. I can follow the shot via staying on the reticle and seeing hits/misses. No perceptible recoil. The 7 RM for hunting with either a 4-14 FFP or 5-25 FFP optic. Enough "whack" downrange without the "wallop" of felt recoil.

    I've shot a 30-06 with hand loads for 20 years from speed goats to elk. I'm gonna make a custom rifle here soon and after all my research I'm leaning very heavily towards a 28 Nosler. It will be a once in a life time gun that I'll hand over to my son someday.

Lately, I have found myself carrying my Remington 700 ti in 270 a lot. It is nearly as accurate as the 300 but more difficult for me to shoot well because of its light weight. It sure is nice to carry. If the bolt were on the correct (not right) side, I think the 300 would lose its number 1 spot.
    What I meant to get around to in my original post but did not is that the 270 works fine for the deer, black bear, and elk I hunt, at the ranges my shots usually are (less than 200 yds), and it can easily be put in a light, non-braked package.

    for big game ....270.
    flat shooting, easy to find ammo most anywhere and it will drop any animal the world has to offer.

    some think it to small but put the bullet in the right spot and it will not fail you

    I'm not sure I can agree, he just may not have a picture. After all, how many pics of trophy rabbits have you seen, regardless of the caliber they were taken with?

    I hunted my first 25 years with a used 30-06 I bought when I was about 14. Switched to a 7 mag simply because that's what my dad always used. Just over 10 years with that one now.
    I've taken 3 animals with a .35 Whelen. Pronghorn, deer, and a moose.
    Just picked up a like new Sako AV .300 win mag I'm looking forward to hunting with this year.

    LOL- I guess you're correct on that one! I'm not sure there would be much left to take a picture of. Just messing with AK and his big Alaskan round.
