i want something with great power as i never shoot over 150 yards where i hunt. give me some of yalls opinions please.
Your 7-08 is already a GREAT 150 yard (and acutally beyond) whitetail deer gun. If you just want to get a new gun, that's one thing (and very understandable as most everyone gets the wanderlust for a new gun every now and then). OTOH, DON'T get a new gun expecting to get improved performance over your 7-08. None of the guns you mentioned (nor any 6.5mm-35 caliber short/long/ultra long/super short/really short magnums) is going to kill that whitetail any more dead than will the 7-08. Having said that, if you want a new gun, just get something that can be used someday on dream _______ (fill in the blank w/ whatever is your dream) hunt.
