A friend of mine asked for advice on an Elk hunt. He was looking at .30/06 or a 7MM Magnum. Since I have never hunted Elk I thought I would ask for some advice. I have hunted and shot large Whitetail Deer with both, I thought either would do the job. Range is (roughly) about 3 to four hundred yards. What's the better choice? The two Whitetail I shot with the 7MM dropped in place, but the range was less than 200 yards. What do you think? Thanks for any opinions!
