    Let's see .308 or 30.06?

    I'd have to go with the .308. It is a bit more common and will only become more so in the future.

    I just bought my only bolt action rifle, and I chose .308. After browsing my Lyman manual and the internet I found that .308 and .270 are almost identical ballistically, and both are pretty close to 30.06. .308 is the most common of the 3 and the cheapest to shoot.

    Only one bolt action?

    Good grief, you might as well ask me what CHILD I'd like to save if all 5 were all drowning simultaneously.

    I couldn't make a decision like that!

    Hands down, 6mm Remington. It's an efficient whitetail/mule deer and antelope slayer, as well as a very potent varmint caliber.
