Deer Cartridges

How many <u>different</u> cartridges have you shot deer with? I see alot of people claiming that "X" cartridge is "the best". Makes me wonder if that is the only cartridge they have ever used.

Personaly I have taken deer with;
257 Roberts AI
257 Wby
270 Win
280 Rem
30-06
300 Wby
340 Wby
358 Win
50 cal inline

They all killed deer, and I never noticed that one killed "deader" than another.

Good luck, Tony

Re: Deer Cartridges

17 Rem....243....30-06...300Wby.
And truth be told the 17 Rem & 300Wby probably killed the quickest. The 243 was a very efficient killer. The 30-06 always had varying effects and took the most deer. I had it kill like lightning and also had them run 100yds dead on their feet.

30-06, 243, 12 gauge slug. Shot the most with 243. Actually the most of them were taken by a Hoyte.
