I like them all depending on what you're going after.

My top three are:
Varmints - 220 Swift 55gr VMAX
Medium size game and varmints - 6mm-284 with 105gr VLD
Large game and long range - 7mm RUM with VLD's

30-06 best all around rifle out there IMO you can shoot 55 grain up to a 220,240 if you would like to.

1 of my 6CM's with a 115 DTAC. It is an all around cartridge for me from F/Class, 1000 yard Bench, Varmint, and so on. The barrel life is great and fast flat shooting.

Re: Favorite Caliber

270WSM is mine. 130grn Silver Tip flat puts deer down and I havent had to track one that I shot since 2003 when I bought it. Its definately a head shooter when puttin meat in the Freezer. Fast, flat, accurate.

I have to admit that 30-30 put my 1st buck down at 12 years old. I would say its an all around hard to beat round from 0-200yds.

For me it started with the 30-06, then the 300wsm showed up & I just love it!! There have been many to fall by the .30 cal over the years.
