    I'm wanting a new rifle. I will be using it for deer and elk in the future I already have a .270 but am looking for something with more knock down power what would be a good caliber? not wanting a 30-06, something bigger.

    My personal weapon of choice is a .300 win mag a lot off knock down power very far distance bullet, the ammo is not to bad in price, and come on if it isn't a good caliber than why is the military using it.

      I was going to say the same thing a .300 win mag. My uncle used to own an Elk hunting ranch and still is an avid elk hunter and he uses a .338 mag. However, its overkill for whitetail.

        The .35 Whelan is based on the .30-06 case, and has plenty of knockdown power.

          I like the .308 but if bigger the .300 win mag is a good place to start your search
