Really great cartridge. I have one in the Alaskan and my wife has the guide gun model, we both shoot the 300GR North Fork SS bonded and they are DEADLY.

Just made a deal on a 300 win mag out of our classifieds here on TBH. Dang Nilgais don't stand a chance now.

So I came across a good deal on a ruger hawkeye ftw in 7 rem mag. So now I need to find some good bullets to shoot out of the 1-9.5 twist.

Best not to leave anything to chance. Just convince the wife you need a 460 weatherby magnum. Rule#1 better to have and not need than need and not have

Always thought a 416 would be awesome on them. One trip down one of the King Ranch guides said a guy came down every year and hunted with one. The said it was a smackdown.
