master list of all around cartridge list

ok, first off, i want it to be noted that i mean a list of cartridges to coverall bases for all game everywhere. i was recently reading on chuck hawks, that's what made me think up this list of my own. that being said please comment as much as possible, and please submit your own lists.

a. .243win. for varmints, antelope, whitetail, hogs, african game of similar size, etc.
b. .308win. for whitetail, mulies, elk, black bear, moose, mid sized non-dangerous african game, etc.
c. .338fed. for elk, moose, larger bears, buffalo, larger african game, etc.
d. .375H&H. for looong shots on large game like moose, bears, elk, and large african game, and dangerous game.

notes: i know the 338fed ammo is not easy to find, but it seems like a good round, and i've been reading a lot of good stories from those who have used it. that may be my next purchase if not my 308.

Re: master list of all around cartridge list

If people could agree on a limited set, there wouldn't be so many choices.

It often comes down to one's preference for an individual rifle.

- 22LR
- 6.5x284
- 375H&H
