Im sure that this have been talked about a ton. I have been thinking about getting a new rifle for just sheep/deer hunting. I have been looking at the sako finnlight and im a little undecided about the caliber I want. I have narrowed it down to 3 calibers. The first one is a 7mm-08, the second is 300 wsm, and the last would be the 30-06. I really wanted a 280, but they dont make one in that caliber. I really dont like to shoot past 350 yards, and would probley pass-up a shot that was much farther then that.
My last option would be to load 180 accubonds out of my cooper 338-06. Anyone have any experence with these. I usually shot 210 partition out of it at about 2650fps or so. It shots really well, but it weights in at about 8.5 lbs. and a little lighter might be nicer for in the mountains.
