Re: .270 / 7mmRM / .30-06 Consultation - Traditional Hunting Ranges

Given the options in Ricardo's post I would go with what Mike says. I gave one of my boys a Remington model 721 as well as a Sako Mannlicher both in 30/06 and both rifles shoot well and handle all sorts of shots at elk and moose.
I have shot more than a few large grizzly bear with one as well.

We had a thread on this site some time back many may recall. I posted a comment about a guide-outfitter here in northern British Columbia Canada who hunted all over the world and took an astounding number of very large trophies.
While speaking to him one day, I asked what his favourite rifle was and he answered abruptly and with emotion he only had 30/06 rifles and they were all that anyone needed. I agreed with him after looking at his collection of Winchester model 70 rifles in his trophy room.
