Which would be better for a deer,possibly elk rifle?Rifle is a Browning BAR Longtrac.
I've owned about five '06's and four 7RM's over the last 40 years. I have a 7RM now. If I could do it all again, I'd get a 280 Rem, or a .270 WIN. and be done with the argument. I actually like my 7-08 better than either the '06 or 7RM for general use. The .270's I've loaded for make that a real good choice also.Not ten cents worth of difference. Pick one and enjoy.
In a word, no.Is a magnum better?
