End the hate, what cartridge do you LOVE???

For me it is undoubtedly the .300 Savage in Model 99. Alot of my early hunting was with my grandfather and that's what he used. It was the first rifle he bought when he got back from WWII. He paid $50 for it and a box of shells. When he passed away in 1996, he left that rifle to me. I had some work done to it to get it in better working order and have used it since. I have shot probably a dozen deer with it and a bear and it has worked great for me. I've been shooting either 165 or 180 grain bullets out of it and it's everything I need for the areas I hunt. Most of all, it just reminds me of hunting with my grandfather. 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.

My all time favorite is the .270 Winchester. Growing up reading O'Connor probably has something to do with it.

Others on my favorite list. .257 Roberts,30-06 and the.375 H&H.

The .264 Winchester Magnum. Kills deer like a blow from Thors hammer!
