So I'll be moving out to CO this spring and am anticipating my first elk hunt this fall and need a larger rifle. Caliber wise I'm thinking either a 30.06 or a 7MM Mag. I know neither is overkill for elk but I plan to shoot premium rounds so that should all but make-up for any lack of size. Also, I have been debating between a Weatherby Vanguard II, Sako Roughtech Pro, or a Howa Houge (all synthetic stock and stainless barrel). I haven't had the opportunity to shoot either the Sako or Howa, any input would be greatly appreciated on pros/cons of these rifles. Thanks!
