Good point. The first centerfire rifle I ever shot was a M1 Garand, courtesy of the Navy. I had no idea anything could be that powerful. I was hooked. (I think maybe that was when the voices started to speak to me).
The 30-06 Garand would be a close second to the .340 as an all-around rifle. I used to hunt with one. A rugged, accurate rifle with a great set of iron sights.
Damn, I'm hearing the voices again. Tom
