The 300 Win. Magnum is a great caliber with lots of fans. It'll kill anything on the planet and is exceedingly accurate. But taking the present economy into constideration, you might check out how much a box of bullets for that gun will cost. Depending on what game animal you are after, you might be just as well off with a good old 30/06 as I believe you can still get these on sale from time to time - and that doesn't happen too often with the magnums. And, by the way, that caliber will also do-in anything on four feet as well.
Another side point on caliber: my personal opinion is that if you are shooting a caliber for which you need to have a muzzle brake, you are shooting a gun that's unnecessarily big for you and, most likely, too big for your quarry.

That's a good one, Joel. But don't forget to put a brake on that one.
