I know for sure that I will end up with 2. Just want the first one to do a little of both, heavier on the precision side. Smile

The stores I went into today had NO .308 ammo or brass and limited bullets and powder.  They did have quite a bit of 30-06 which is a fine choice to learn on as it has less recoil than the magnums and loaded ammo cost about the same as .308 but isnt it nice to actually be able to find ammo. The 270 ammo was also readily available as was 300 WM and 7mm Mag. At the rate things are disappearing you would be well advised to buy a 30-06 or a 300 WM and whatever ammo you can find minimum of 200 rounds. The R5 Mil Spec comes in 300 WM but they were hard to find before this madness but I think you may be in luck if you move quickly. 
Here is your rifle:

+100 on the 300WM. Its what I've carried the past two yrs and I have other rifles to choose from. Its over kill for deer in my area but dead is dead and with my 300WM if I can see it I can reach it. I loaded Berger 168 VLD but just ordered some Berger 185's just to see what I can get out of her. And one thing you can count on. The 300WM will do all that you have been sayin you want to do. And do it well!!
