Thread: What's your favorite Whitetail rifle caliber? Why?

    Whatever starts with 3. Right now I have a 30-06 that I am using and trying to get my 30-30 back from my brother. Many people prefer the .308 and it seems to have a little less recoil and the shorter throw is prefered by some. I like the 30-06 as it is about the most versital caliber made adequate for almost any medium to large game found in North America. I am lazy so I don't want to go chasiing a deer after I shoot it and the SCDNR studies say that the .3xxxxx caliber gives the best chance of that.

    I checked .308 win although I really use 7.62x54R(RIMMED NOT "RUSSIAN") It's basically the same round, just hotter with a 3mm longer cartridge. Accurate, inexpensive at $12 for a box of 20 203gr SP and usually good out to 300m. I also use a 12 ga with 3/4oz HP slugs for shorter distance, I carry a few 3" shells for chance bear encounters which are becoming more frequent around here...

  5. I shoot a 270 in a howa bolt action. The 270 shoots flat and has very little kick. have killed deer as far as 230 yards and as close as 5 feet using hornady balistic tip 130 grain bullets. there are many fine cartridges out there 30-06 270 308 and a host of magnums ,I say try as many as you can and pick what you like.Have fun hunting and be safe out there.
