30 cal magnum(Don't know which one yet). Quite vanilla I know.
I have a hard time believing that a 338 win mag is insufficient for bison when they were killed in droves with 45-70's back in the day.
Yes, I killed it, but it did not exit the far side. You did not read my post correctly. I have taken bison in fact with a 45/70 on several occasions. A head shot sometimes works but it takes multiple rounds. A 45/110 was the more popular in history for bison. Read the account of the Battle of Adobe Walls where Billy somebody shot an indian chief at 1500 yards with the aforementioned rifle. One gun that works very well on bison is my center fire 50 cal magnum muzzle loader. Only takes one shot to the head. They fall down where they stand. If it is long distance then get out the .338 Lapua from HS precision.
.308 Norma Mag
Okay, I’ll update mine from order of preference —
.22-250 falling block (I had to get that one in there)
7mm Rem mag
.358 (35 Whelen, if I had to have just one rifle this what I'd use)
.277 (270 Win.)
.410/.411 (400 Whelen)
.264 Win Mag
.300 Win Mag
.338 Win Mag
416 Rigby (375 H&H or 375 Ruger in a braked guide Gun if you want less recoil)
All the gun you’ll ever need for the medium and large game!!!
Yes, I know I listed the same one twice.
