.308 with a quality constructed 165-180 bullet... No 400lbs. or substantially larger animal can take a solid hit from a quality .308 round and continue on it's merry way...

Absolutely there are stronger rounds, but why start down a path with no end... I'm all for finding excuses for more firearms, so in that regard heck yeah get another rifle but don't do it out of the notion of necessity...

Like magten mentioned, if you're gonna be up close and personal you may want to rethink your rifle, but I'd be more concerned with faster follow up shots than more horsepower... Maybe a levergun of varying calibers but even with thats said, I'd still be content with your bolt .308...
