Any game in America, I'm sure. Deer and elk specifically, I would assume. I am curious as to the ballistics and cartridge behaviour, accuarcy, etc.

DOn't know much about the Short magnum, but I bought a 300 Ultra Mag last fall, all I have to say is KICK!! Great gun for all big game. Alot better than the old trusty 30-30 a.k.a the Dirty 30!!

Yeah its a bolt action, made by Remington, shooting 180gr.

Are you thinking about gettin one?? Your from Northern, MN Up by I-falls right?? THis gun would be perfect for you, long range shots in open fields.

That's were I grew up at. I've been out in ND for 6 years now. I actually shoot a BROWNING 30-06 Auto. I shoot 165gr nosler blastic tips w/ 50 grains of IMR 4064 pushing it. I have also had good luck with the 150gr Hornady boatails. I haven't hunted whitetails in MN since 97'. I'm going up there this next season. That is if the ducks and geese are outa here.

Bryan its a very very important point to realize its 30 grains of Black powder not modern powder but you were very close. It s the same with the 45/70 ect.
