I can't decide on 280 Ackley or 300PRC for my elk hunting rifle. I've gone back and forth on them for almost a month now. Started off with the 300PRC, went 6.5PRC, back to 300PRC, then 280 Ackley, and now back to the 300PRC. I keep reading on here and other sources the the 7mm family is a great all around hunting round. I would also like to take the rifle out to a mile when not hunting. Is the 280 Ackley a good fit for elk hunting and ELR shooting with manageable recoil (not a must but would be nice to keep my shoulder)?
