I did both. I had my 300 for elk and nilgai hunting. I used hornady 165gr BTSPS and had great luck with them. I'd also look at Berger VLD's. They are not that much more expensive and will retain velocity down range. Best powders for me were RL 22 and H1000. I also used 150 gr BTSPS but you will get less drop way down range going with the 165's
I bought the gun for the above mentioned purpose but also used for whitetail and feral hogs. I liked the down range punch, but disliked how it punched me back. I got rid of it and use 243 270 for those purposes and my 7mag for elk/nilgai
VEGETARIAN...old indian word for bad hunter
