    Then go with a 30.06, it moves the rounds little faster then the 308. Look at the Remington 700 LR in 26'' barrel. Best of luck.

    Yes it can, if the OP wants to spend 5700.00 for a basic rifle with no optics.

    Damn I wish I could of done that when I was 12, but honestly I don't think my dad would have ever let me shoot a 7mm rem mag at that age

    I coyote hunt with an 06 using non expanding rounds (like jacketed and all copper bullets) for maximum organ shock with minimal pelt damage. I also have hunted deer with the 06 and it's great, with 180 grain bullets and a good shot placement you could take an elk at 900 with the 06 without the recoil and ammo prices of the 300 win mag or 7mag. Plus if you plan on shooting a decent amount the 06 has something like twice the barrel life or more of the 300 win mag and 7mm.

    It really depends upon the terrain, range and the rifle you feel most comfortable with. There are some shooters (myself not included) who claimed to have bagged an elk with a 6.5 CM. For 300 meters in sparse vegetation, I would choose a 06 or 303. For 600+ meters, a 280 AI or 7mm Weatherby Mag. For a good brush gun, a short barreled magnum or a 280 AI might suffice. Now between 300-600 meters, I'll let you choose (don't rule out the 308).
    In adversity remember to keep an even mind, train hard and fight easy.
