Cartridge you've harvested the most deer with?

Just like the question asks. What rifle cartridge have you harvested the most deer with?

For me it's the .300 Savage in my Model 99 using handloaded 165 grain Hornady Interlocks. The vast majority of my bucks are with the bow, but I've gotten around 20 deer with my .300 now.

Most of mine with my bow also,but the majority of my rifle kills were with my Ithaca LSA65 in .270Win. with a variety of 130 grain ammo over the years. My last couple were with a 50 cal in-line.

I'm guessing my 50cal TC Hawken flintlock..


A couple bow kills..2 with a 308..a couple with my 35 Whelen.. don't think my 280 has a deer yet...the rest were 3006 but I'm betting the flintlock has more or real close..

I'm not sure which one has the most, but it's either the 25-06 Remington or 308 Winchester.
