Yea, it will work for that, as well as the bigger stuff we have out here wyorover. Bull elk at 300 yards? No problem if you use a good bullet and put it right thru the boiler room. Never had one take more than ten steps with mine that way.

Well I am with you on the truck part.

Seriously, though, I used to shoot big magnums like most guys do out west here, seemingly. But I made the decision about 10 years ago to ditch the .300 Win Mag I had and go with 30-06 and I have never regretted it, nor has it handicapped me in any way whatsoever. Not saying that .300 Win is not a fine cartridge, because it is. But I just decided that it wasn't necessary and that I preferred the versatility of the '06, as well as the less expensive ammo. It may not have the reach that my .300 Win had, but it has more than enough to bring down anything on this continent inside 300 yards with good bullets and shot placement.

i have shot a 7mm ultramag for years its the kinda gun that just does all the work for you 500 yard shot are nothing i realy could not count the deer i have killed with it.
it just fits me. i started messing around with others 300wsm,7mmwsm, 338 ultramag,300ulta. all the new stuff but just always end up with the old standby. but recently i have
been so drawn in by .308 its been their all the time and i just over looked it. i have targets set up @ 500 and 800 yards and it is dead on. for now it looks like the one

In WV it's hard to find 500yds of land flat enough to take practice shots, leave aside actually take meat at that range.
I have a friend out west that says that easterners aren't good marksmen because he also hunts with magnum rifles at long distance. I always tell him that he needs that long range because he doesn't have the hunting skills to sneak within 100 yards of a deer.

Must be that I was lucky to buy an earlier version because the only difference between it and the BDL was all stuff I didn't want or need anyway. But the bolt, trigger, fit were just as you described. And accurate!!

I think your comment about the 30-06 is inaccurate and uneducated. the 30-06 itself is well known for shooting long range. For example, the M1 grand. Though hunting rifles aren't meant to shoot as far as an M1 set for long range, they will still shoot a few hundred yards easily, depending on the model. I have personally shot whitetails with my model 70 -06 out to 200 yards and have never missed my target. And about the ammo... they make a 220 grain bullet that is more than enough for even the biggest game, elk, bear, moulies, you name it that rifle will bring it down.

Default you DO understand a .308 is just a cut off 06?

That it can't be loaded to shoot as well as the longer cartridge?
