really theres no such thing as the best.  You get the best, then think of how another could be the best in a different scenario, so you get that.  Wash, rinse repeat.  Somehow youll soon have 2 safes full of guns that are all "the best."

If money is no object and 0-500 is the goal then I'd do this in a 300 win mag (OP's caliber)

Lone peak razor ti action
Benchmark Ibex stock or manners eh1
Triggertech diamond trigger
HCA carbon barrel cut to 22"
Light weight suppressor (im not versed on can's)
Top it with a quality scope in an appropriate range (I am digging 4-16's right now)


With minor exception of digging 4-16 3-15x & 3-18x right now..

I would say a good bolt action rifle in any cartridge between 270 and 30 caliber, topped with a 3-9 power scope and total weight around 8 to 9 pounds would do well in the vast majority of situations. It would not be the perfect rifle for every situation but no "all around" rifle will be.

 Exceptional answer.

It’s like ford Chevy dodge
What you like and can afford and shoot well
Keep the wind in your hair, and the sun at your back.

A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.

What would life be without the thrill of the hunt ?
