Most Hated Cartridge!

Here's another thread similar to the popular ones that are blowing up now!

Do you have a cartridge that you hate? Maybe for a particular reason, maybe not! Let's hear it!

I despise the Turdy-turdy! Imo there's no reason for it to be so popular. Yes it kills deer, but what gun doesn't? Nothing is impressive about it to me. Not the guns, or ballistics. It's a slow .30 caliber chunk of lead. If something is that slow, it should at least make a big hole! There's plenty of better options for kids or women too. I can honestly say that is one caliber I don't have, and will probably never have!

Re: Most Hated Cartridge!

I hate the 308 Winchester.....As a kid in forestry school the three guys I hung around with all used a 308 while I was a 270 fan...We would argue ballistics, etc. and they would constantly gang up on me.....We finally all brought our guns to college one week and had a target match at a local range...I probably zigged or zagged at the right time but I shot a 3/4" group with my Remington 760 in 270 and that shut everybody up....To this day however, I have a strong prejudice against the 308....Nothing wrong with them, I just don't like 'em..

Re: Most Hated Cartridge!

There is not a single cartridge that I hate or would not want to own. There are some that are lower on my wish list then others.

Good luck, Tony

I just don't know why anyone would want a .257 Roberts!

^This. Why hate cartridges? I could come up with a use for any of them.

Re: Most Hated Cartridge!

308! My first gun was a 308 and I was shooting 180 grain round nose. I had a hard time killing deer with it and said it was the most crippling caliber out there. Had a deer I shot 5 times to kill, 3 of the times it got up and walked few yards and would fall down. I know everyone else has great luck with them and I'm not knocking it anymore, but I will never own one.
