I am currently using a savage 110fp in .300 win mag for hunting everything from white tialed deer to the few larger game species I have available in my state. I have shot it for years and I love the ability of the cartridge to reach out to great distances and still have the power to dependably knock down deer sized game. However I'm not the worlds biggest guy and that .300 can get punishing after awhile. Does anyone have any good suggestions on a less punishing caliber that will still allow me to have the long range capability and knock down power to do the job? I've been searching for quite awhile and just can't seem to find a good compromise.
