Re: Favorite Caliber

It may sound funny on a long range sight, but my hands down favorite is the .30-30 Winchester, I killed my first deer with it 40 years ago or so and it outnumbers any other chambering in the safe 3 to 1.

    45 yrs. ago my first firearm was a Mod. 70 30 06. That is my favorite caliber and always will.

    My favorite cartridge is my 7mm STW. Kinda modeled it after John Burns and his shooting systems when he was the host of The Best of The West back years ago.

    I'd have to say mine is a 6.5-284.

    The .300 H&H just "feels" good to me. A rifle I might not think about otherwise becomes more interesting if it's chambered .300 H&H.

    I've been thinking on this since you first posted the thread. I have too many favorites depending on the specific application.

    In the end though, even though I don't currently own one I came up with the 7mm Remington Magnum.

    It's simply the most versatile caliber out there for everything from prairie dogs to Elk and Moose, and very cost effective to shoot.

    Tolerable recoil in a light rifle, capable of .25 MOA accuracy, flat shooting/high velocity, with a great selection of bullets for everything from small varmints to all but the biggest and most dangerous game.

    My most favorite is the 30-06. Bought a model 70 in 1963 and rebuilt it for the 3rd time last winter. Just the perfect hunting rifle. The 300 WM is my second favorite.
