Re: End the hate, what cartridge do you LOVE???
For it's "total package" versatility...undoubtedly the 30-06. You can load it up light for varmints and up through the mid size bullet weights for deer and elk...(I always liked the 165 gr for deer)...right on up to the 220 gr with stout bulletsfor the biggest stuff in N America... I know of a Alaskan Brown bear guide who preffered that load in the '06 over any of the super mags. With something like 50 brown bear kills, and still around to tell his stories, that's proof enough for me. Hard to beat. Timeless.
