I hesitate to say this but here goes. I feel that if I can't get within about 300 yds of the animal I'm wanting to shoot, I'm not hunting very well. I'd be more concerned about my strategy and physical conditioning than what caliber of rifle I was using. But that's just me.

If you've got a 338 Win Mag, then of the two I think you would be better suited with the 7mm Rem Mag. That said, the 300 Win Mag might give you slightly more options as far as factory ammo and handloading goes.

In case you're wondering, I have a 300 Win Mag. Thing is, mine's a pistol.

learn what a bullet does from trigger break till impact and get back with me.
Cool story man!

Bench shooting a 300 Win mag is misery.

BC will outrun velocity every time beyond 600 yards.

Any 2 given bullets of the same BC drift and drop exactly the same regardless of weight or diameter....FACT!
Heavier fights wind better though - correct ?

RR you know that I love it, when it's just plain simple !!!
