Thanks for all of the replies...very good info. I want the 300 mag caliber b/c I can take it anywhere in North America with no doubt it will do the job.....I know many will argue that locals kill elk with 30-30's, .270's, etc....I am simply partial to the 300 mag. If I spend 1000.00+ on a rifle and 700-1000 on a scope, that will probably be the only rifle I use for any hunting trip and I feel the 300 mag is one of the most versatile rounds made.
It appears many would pick the Ruger b/c its a good looking rifle and I agree....but I am more concerned with out of the box accuracy than looks. I don't want to buy a nice rifle and then spend hours trying to get it to shoot 1.5 inch groups at 100 yards.
