Favorite Caliber

Whats your favorite caliber of all time and why. Mine is .308 mainly because its the very first caliber I used to kill my first whitetail buck. Not to mention its easy to shoot, easy to find and is relatively cheap.

Re: Favorite Caliber

As of right now it is the 25-06. Fast, flat, accurate with little to no descerniable recoil. Great for everything from coyote thru deer, bear size game and even works wonders on hard to kill hogs. Will take deer sized game to 600-700 yds and coyotes and such a might further. I will probably move to 300 Win Mag or 300 Rum to move up to larger game or step out a little further when I'm ready but for around here and my general hunting I'll probably still carry my 25-06 more than any other rifle. I've carried it for 15 years now and have never felt under gunned. Brad

My favorite all-around caliber would be would be the. 280 Remington. If I could only own one rifle for all my hunting, that would be it.

.308 for me. It's fun to play with, lots O bullet choices and economical to shoot.
