Hey everybody, im new to this forum and want to say hey. I started hunting last year and got my first deer 2 weeks ago and that was a 8 pointer. anyway im trying to get a new gun for x-mas but i dont know what i want. I hunt in virginia and i hunt fields and woods. my biggest field i hunt is about 300 yards so that would be the biggest shot i would have to make. Im wondering about a browning A-bolt 308 win. a 30-06 and a 300 WSM. my question is what would be the best gun for me to use in the mountains,woods, and the fields. thanks for any help

if you are strictly going to hunt white-tail, then a .30-06, 7mm-08, .300, or .30-30 al will work fine. If you want a all-around gun both the .30-06, and 7mm-08 work well in the woods and on long shots. Having used both i can attest to reliablility and accuracy. The .30-30 is more of a short range brush gun used for the woods. long range accuracy is not as good as a .300 or .30-30. The 7mm-08 is powerfull enough to bring down elk, yet has very little recoil at all. I would reccomend either the 7mm-08, .30-06 or .300 Win mag
The 300 WSM compares with the 300 Win Mag in most loads . The accuracy I can't say personally , but it should be equal to the 300 WM . Just depends how well each individual gun went together at the factory . Personally the 300 is more gun than I would use for deer but that is just my opinion .
