I have my Dad's Vanguard 300 win mag and it is awesome,it has a wood stock and I also own two Ruger M77 MK II's one in 270 and 7mm mag.
I had work done on the trigger in the 270,now you can cover 3 shots with a penny (100 yds).

I own A 300 ULTRA MAG try checking out the ballistic's between the 300 mag an the 300 Rum you'll be amazed of the differance between the 2 of them. The 300 RUM surpass's the 300 mag by a long run.

yea but it costs alot more, the deer in fl arent very big body wise, 270 does the job for both deer and hogs, I just want to upgrade for those longer shots, ive pulled off 200 yrd shot with my 270 but he ran a ways, my dad has a 300 wea mag and he shot 2 bucks and a hog and they all dropped on the spot, and the bullet prices are alot to. the 300 win mag has affordable prices. my dad pays $46 for a box of 300 wea mags, 300 win mags go for $20. and has for the velocities they all shot in the 3000s

Hmmmm, I would hesitate to vote for getting a 300 mag. Deer and virtually any animal you could hunt in North America can be taken down with much lower calibers. Sides a 300 mag generally kicks booty from both ends. IMO, you'd do good getting something like a 30.06 and do very well.

300 wthby lazer mark is a sweat gun my uncle has it i love shooting that gun the quality wheatherby uses in there wood stocks you dont even feel the blast...as far as being to big for whitetail i would have to disagree the 300 is a very versatile round it has about 12 different grains in bullets to choose from you can hunt anything from rabbit to moose with the 300 all around it is a very misunderstood caliber in my opinion

rnwinter, the 300 doesnt kick that bad, ive shot a 300 wea mag and it didnt hurt, im not a fan of the 30-06 rather keep my 270 than that. iwanted the 300 win mag for long shots, and from experience, when a deer and hog gets shot in the right spot it doesnt run judt drops in its tracks, and the bullet price isnt but $2 for than what i pay for 270 win bullets.

Buy the .300 Win Magnum.
A .300 Win Magnum is .308 caliber, as are the 30.06,   308,  30.30,  300 Savage,  30.40 Krag etc.

By decreasing the powder charge in the .300 Win Magnum, you can attain the muzzle velocity, pressures and recoil of that particular rifle listed above.

With a .300 Win Magnum you can ALWAYS lower your powder charge  to decrease the velocity because they are capable of withstanding lower pressures.

Likewise you should NEVER increase the recommended powder charge as listed in reloading manuals because non magnums are NOT capable of withstanding the higher pressures. 

That would be like pulling the trigger on a bomb.

You should try different bullets for the smaller caliber rifles as well. the win mag and rum are only 30 cal, but but increasing the muzzle velocity you are only pushing the bullet faster and maybe not getting the stop and drop effect you want. there are several different solid copper bullets out there that have great expansion and weight retention that will hit like a ton of bricks. I personally use a 7MM rem mag and with a barnes tsx 150 gr. hpbt. and only 60 gr. of IMR 4831 with a collet crimp on the neck. I am pushing over 2500 fps. with the expansion of the bullet the deer if they do walk not run don't go more than 25 yards.
