I am looking at a 300WSM repeater. Last year last day we had 5 tags to fill we made a drive and I had almost 30 deer run by at 200+ yards. The smokeless muzzleloaders did there job but we ended up with 2 unfilled tags. I hunt in a slug zone. I had an 458 SOCOM AR pistol but they were out of range and not enough time to reload either muzzleloader. I am thinking of building something that I could still shoot running deer at 2-3 hundred yards. Dose anyone know of any other options. I am also thinking of 2-3 remage stand guns but thinking the Pork Sword would be cheaper and easier to carry. I wised to be one of the walkers but my orthopedic surgeon said your a poster for next 3-5 years due to a severe ACL tare. The last day of season 20 of us meet up and make sure all tags are filled. The rest of the season I sit back relax and harvest standing deer. This is a need for 1 day a year and hopefully once I can get knees replaced it won’t be needed anymore. The laws I am confined by are I hunt in a “slug zone”. I can us shotguns with slugs, muzzleloaders and handguns. Any other ideas for this specific problem solver are welcome.

That looks like a pretty good solution for the problem. I don't know that you'll find anything that can outperform that for the duties required.
Possibly an AR-10 pistol in 7-08 or similar, thats about the only other thing I'd say would be close to those specs...
The AR-10 was my original thought but 308 ballistics weren’t much better than 300 blackout. When dealing with 24” overall length requirements dropping the buffer tube length let’s me add to barrel length. Also having a Remage pistol is starting to grow on me.
