7 mag unless I were after something that might eat me. A friend has taken several Alaskan moose with this caliiber and the 175-grain Nosler Partition. I've killed close to 50 mule deer and antelope with the 7 mag and 140 grainers. It's a superb long-range cartridge.

Hard to to beat either one but if you could only own one rifle I would choose the 300 Win Mag. Very accurate and will take down any North American big game including dangerous game with the proper bullet.
That being said, I don't own a .300 any more. I mainly use my 7mm Rem. Mag and .280 Rem. in the States and my .338 Win. Mag. in Alaska and Africa.
ARE YOU GONNA PULL THOSE PISTOLS OR WHISTLE DIXIE?

I wouldn't scoff at either gun, however if I had to choose, it would be the 300 win mag.

I personally was in the market for a rifle not long ago and was looking for something that could take down almost anything in north america. I was looking at a 300 Win Mag, but they had a 30-06 right next to it. I decided on the 30-06. Ammo is much cheaper, you can get it almost anywhere, and you can get off the shelf ammo from 150 gr up to 220 gr.

I just can't justify mag rounds, but then again I don't take many shots outside of 200 yds.
It's a fact that 70 percent of the people who purchase heavier tackle do so with the categorical I just lost a huge snook! Einstein Hairdo.The other 30 percent have either Tarpon Fever or are sporting a hand cramped into a claw from a deepwater grouper.

l hunt ın the hımaleyas so the closest shots l can take are 300 yards ıf l am lucky!
l made a great shot the other week, at a Beozar IBEX from 783 meters and droped ıt dead ın ıts tracks. and the calıber l used for that shot was 7mm Rem Mag and the gun was a HEYM SR 30 STRAIGHT PULL BOLT ACTION RIFLE. a great amerıcan/german combınatıon for extended ranges!

Beozar Ibex? That's a new one on me. Is that a deer-size animal or larger? What bullet are you using?

I believe that remington makes the new 300 super mag with power level ammo. That gun is great. It gives you the ability to kill anything in North America with one gun. Or you could by a30-03, 7mm and a 300 win mag so that you could do the same thing. Just my take and it is on my buy list. Also 2 of my hunting partners have them and love them.

How does a 300 have better ballistics than a 7? Ain't gonna happen, if comparing apples to apples.

I'd take a 7....

High bc bullets in the 7mm but for most every one both guns will work. If i had to pick one it would be the 7mm with the 168 berger gun bulit by gap

I prefer the 7MM Rem Mag. Great performance with wayy less recoil. Also as far as i knew a 7MM had better ballistics than a 30?

The only difference is heavier bullets.

That being said, the 7 mag stays in the house and i shoot a 25-06 now. It kills deer like a bolt of lightning. The 7 does too, but the 25 has less recoil.
Who knew strippers had feelings?
