Yea i dont know if the 30/30 is much good past 150, it has the trajectory of a rainbow once you get past 100. The 257 roberts is a sweet shooting caliber and the 25 caliber rounds shooting 117 gr bullets is the perfect combo for deer sized game imo. I shot a 25/06 for about 5 years and regret selling it every day. Ammo is easier to find for the 25/06 than the 257 roberts and the 25/06 has more power and range.

What ammo do you get 300 yards of accuracy in your 7mm-08 ?
I can't get more than 150 yards in my BAR.

"Yea i dont know if the 30/30 is much good past 150, it has the trajectory of a rainbow once you get past 100"

That statement is incorrect in that with the 160 grain Leverevolution ammo now available for the 30-30 it is easily a 200 yard caliber for deer with no rainbow trajectory like the other post stated as with a sightin of + 2 3/4" high at 100 yards it is dead on at 200! After that distance it will drop about 12" at 300 and that's why I said it's good out to 200.

IMO - .270 Win is the best one gun whitetail hunting rifle caliber.


The saying is; "the 7mm RM shoots as flat as a .270 and hits as hard as a .30-06". Ole' Man

It really depends on maximum range potential.

Shorter range shots don't need the flat shooting rounds such as the 7MM Mag. Longer range shots do.

Larger calibers do better creating larger wound channels.

Smaller, faster, lighter rounds are better for longer ranges accuracy wise.

There have been issues with small wound channels and lack of ability to track & retrieve a kill at shorter shooting distances.

You can compensate a smaller, faster round with a lighter skinned or lighter weighted round to 'open up' sooner at shorter range on thin skinned animals such as Whitetails.

Consult a guide in your area for their advisement. They'll give you accurate info.
