I'm thinking about getting a new rifle. For the longest time, I was set on a 7mm Weatherby Mag; but since shooting one, I wonder if there might be something with similair long range ballistics and down range energy, but maybe less recoil?

I don't see myself ever as a true long range hunter, but something heavier than my .280 that can reliably toss a round 500 yards accurately, with enough omph to anchor an elk would be maybe a place to start. Ideas welcomed.
