Well... It's a little fun!!!
.30-06, .375H&H or the one you have in hand at the time of use.
I myself am a 30-06 or 270. man but I do have a 30-30 too and lets be honest the 30-30 round has killed more big game then any other round in the U.S.......
I'm thinking of taking up golf but don't want to spend a lot of money or carry a heavy bag.
Which club should I buy for shots from a few inches to 400 yards?
I'd like to start doing some home remodeling but don't want lots of tools.
Which is most versatile; hammer, screwdriver, saw, or pipe wrench?
Anything that will take a moose will take a whitetail.
Most versatile caliber? 12 Gauge. Works on everything from doves to brown bears. Maybe not the best for a lot of applications, but it will work on any kind of game within its limitations.
Another question thread with no great answer.
.30-06 is always an answer, though.
7 mag, 7-08, 6.5 x 55, '06, any of the 300's will all do the job
One planet, one rifle.
although i have other calibers, the .270 win does everything i ask of it very well. with loads from 90 gr to 150 gr it covers the bases.
The most versatile hunting gun... 12 GA.
"Which club should I buy for shots from a few inches to 400 yards?"
The BEST club in EVERY golfer's bag is ALWAYS ....
12ga shotgun - anything from dove to moose to bear
If you add Africa, then yep, I'd say .375 H&H is the one to run with, for a "just one" caliber.
.280 Rem - Hands down!
50 BMG, kills everything from rabbits to small aircraft. By the way you just have to cook the aircraft alittle longer! All kidding aside, I would go with the 30/06 for commercially available variety of ammunition loadings.
12g is wonderfully dynamic. Lowely dove to big bear. Sure you can kill a dove or a bear with 458 Lott, but which leaves the most edible meat?
Shotguns are inherently dynamic.
is the "All Alaska" round, cause if you cant kill it with a 30-06, you should hide.
100 grn. .243win is my favorite commercial big game round, and 7.62X54R czech LPS is my favorite Milsurp round.
.22lr gets the rest.
.243 is a big game round?
.243 is a most excellent big game round.
Accurate and hard hitting.
I have seen Brown Black and Polar Bears dropped with ease and good shot placement several times. I have owned and used a Rem700ADL with 100grain bullets for years , before I got ahold of a Sako'd Mosin.
Ive dropped countless Caribou with the round and its deadly.
And people flame me for using .280 on everything. I need to invest in a .243 to make the .30-06 and .308 folks even more agitated.
Plenty of power and bad things happen where they pass through.
Bullet placement, bullet placement, bullet placement are the three rules to a clean kill.
Never mind "With what", its all about "Where" .
.280 is fine round.
A long time ago, I would have said thirty o six. Now I say 338 win mag. With bullets from 180 to 300, in conventional bonded or solid form. I would hunt most 99% of anything on any continent and not be too over gunned and barely undergunned. The 338 win mag will do almost anything a 375hh will do. Most 33 cals have better sectional density that 37's
A 12 gauge can take anything from rabbits up to bears!
but if i had to say a rifle i would say a .308 with a nosler partition tip
That made me chuckle.
