Re: why keep comparing the 270 and 06 to the magnums?
took the words out of my mouth Muab Dib. My uncle carries a 300 win mag when we hunt....I always bust on him and ask him if he is expecting to see a buffalo or a 500yd opening in the middle of the woods! when he does shoot a deer with it, I refuse to butcher it for him because there is usually way too much damage to salvage a full quarter, where the shot hit. The super magnum calibers have their place, but I have to agree, it isn't in the PA woods. Not if you like the taste of deer meat! Never been into the "me shoot big gun, so me better hunter" caveman mentality.
