Ever since I was a kid I heard the old phrase "the 30/30 has killed more deer than all other calibers combined". I'm still hearing that on other forums but it goes something like this now, "the 30/30 has killed more deer than any other caliber". Does anybody really still believe that? I'm of the opinion that the 30-06 has surpassed the 30-30 in deer kills a good while ago. Of course who can prove it? I just don't think the argument is valid any more.
