30-06 if you want it to do everything.I am down to a .270, 7mm, or 30-06.
Mine goes the other way and doesn't like the Accelerators.a7mmnut said:If you're lucky enough to get it to shoot Hornady Light Magnums well
The 788, a poor man's tack driver. Accurate for 'cheap'....a fancy walnut monte carlo stock doesn't kill a critter any better than a plain jane birch stock, eh? And, you're not afraid of dragging it through the brush or shoving it under a barb wire fench either....I finally broke down and refinished the stock on mine a couple years ago, used a dark brown tinted laquer and hand rubbed it out....and I still drag it about...and Canuck, one of my all time favorites is a little reworked .243 Winchester--in a Remington 788! :wink: -7-

Out of the three I would go with the 7mm, I own all three and have also hunted elk and antelope and use the 7mm for both. They are all fine choices and will do the job, but the 7mm has more range for antelope and more energy down range energy for elk if you use the 160 grn. bullet. My favorite choice now is the 300 WSM.My house was recently broken into and the *******s stole every gun in the house so I am starting back from scratch. I am looking for a rifle to replace my savage .270. Next year I am going on an Elk and Antelope hunt and I want a rifle that can do it all. I am down to a .270, 7mm, or 30-06. I want a gun to use on every thing and just wondered what you guys thought. I am looking at the Remington model 770. Any input would be sweet just let me know what you think. I would take my bow but I figure first time doing this I would like to have every advantage possible.
