What are the most popular LONG RANGE big game cartridges?

I am going to start a poll (in its own separate thread) and would like to have you guys list the cartridge candidates to be included in the separate poll.

From this existing thread, I will choose up to 10 to include in the official poll in its own thread. And then every one can vote.

So this thread is sort of like an elimination or qualifying round in the competition.....

re: What are the most popular LONG RANGE big game cartridges?

I would rate them this way. Considering that different parts of the country use/require different things from a rifle. I consider shotguns as big game fodder, but they aren't typically classed as 'cartridges', so I left the 12 and 20 guages off my list.

  1. 30-06
  2. 7mm Rem Mag
  3. 30-30
  4. 300 Win Mag
  5. 308 Win
  6. .243 Win
  7. .270 Win
  8. The weatherby's (gotta be on the list, but which one(s) ? 7mm, .300 )
  9. 300 RUM
  10. 300 WSM (if not yet, I look for it to make great strides in the next 10 years).
This list leaves off a ton of great cartridges, 25-06, 22-250, all the 338's and larger (big bears etc).
