How about .280 Remington?

Local guy is selling a Tikka M695.

I'd like something milder than .270 win or .30-06. I have a Garand and I think that's about my upper limit for recoil. I don't like my friend's Mosin much. So I do want an intermediate caliber. OTOH, .308 and .30-06 projectiles with a 190 or 200 grain weight have a higher bc than anything in .243. Maybe it's worth the pounding?

I am getting into reloading, so after collecting some brass and projectiles it wouldn't be too hard to keep feeding it.

I might be interested in hunting west coast white tail, but we actually have more elk around here than deer.

Lots of choices. It's almost aggravating.
