7 mm mag vs 300 mag

Go with 7mag, it will kill any and everything with a lot less recoil than 300wby. And since you are on a budget the 300wby ammo is not on the budget saving side.

7 mm mag vs 300 mag

Some great advice I'm reading here.
I think if you really want a Magnum and think some future hunts can justify one I would go with the 7mm Remington Magnum. It will easy kill elk or moose,nothing more is needed,and the ammo is much cheaper and easier to find. If you happen to pop into a small town,population 1800,on your big hunt for more ammo,don't expect to find Weatherby ammo.For instance here in northern Canada there are only a few stores that carry it,but you can get 7mm ammo anywhere.
It would be really nice if you could try some shooting with an example of each,that might "seal the deal".
