Okay, I've made up my mind on a Remington 798 or 700 (unless the perfect 721 .300H&H drops in my path) and I'm torn on Caliber choice.
I live mostly in the lower 48 (Arizona/Colorado) and the 30-06 is great for anything I would hunt here. But then so is the .375.
AND, I MAY have one more Alaska Bear hunt in my future if my lotto tickets hit (guided hunt) and perhaps a sheep hunt. So, the question develops...
Stick with the .375 or go with the .30-06? What is the REAL answer on if the .30-06 is enough for reliable Brown Bear hunting/protection? Is it good enough (without backup) with a 180 or 200grain Nosler Partition?
I was always comfortable with the results of the .300weatherby...but that's a LOT faster bullet.
OR, Should I split the difference and go with .300winmag or .338winmag?
Or maybe even go with the .308 instead since it's MOSTLY lower 48 use...and Alaska hunts will be guided.
What say you?
