308
Great caliber. Lots of components, tons of data, plenty of power for those distances. I'm 3 for 3 on one shot kills with mine.

With what information you have provided.............the 308 is the gun you are looking for.

I own a 7mm mag, but when I head into the thickets/bush lots I grab one of my 30 cal guns or my 444 Marlin and get the job done.

3 for 3 with my 308. All dropped where they stood with one shot. A 308, with the right load and shooter can have 500 to 750 yard shots all day long with plenty of stopping power. The .30 cal. bullet is plenty heavy for brush (make sure what is in and behind the brush).

Not on your list but they make the model 16 in 6.5 creedmoor. Same trajectory as .300 WM. Hornady makes ammo for it but you can reload the round to 3000+fps.

Of those you listed I'd go 7mm - 08. Either that or 308 with 140 or 150 gr bullets.

Can't beat the accutrigger! I have two of em! Go with the 7mm....Just because I wouldn't want a "run of the mill" caliber.
