The thread about the 7mm Rem Mag being obsolete got my wheels turning. I bet many of us will be surprised to see how popular certain cartridges are among segments of the hunting public, so I decided to create a poll. I intentionally set the poll, so we can only select one cartridge. I realize that many people, myself included, own MANY rifles we can and do hunt deer with. Select the chambering of the rifle you would grab if your best friend showed up and said, “hop in the truck, we’re going hunting.” This is not a poll about what cartridge you think is the most utilitarian or a poll about the next rifle you are dreaming about. If you have to grab your favorite deer rifle and take off to go hunt, what rifle are you taking with you? For me, it’s a Ruger M77 in 6.5x55 topped with a 2-7X Leupold scope. I think that is going to change as I shoot this Ruger No. 1 in 300 Win Mag, but right now the Ruger gets the nod. So, what cartridge is your favorite deer rifle chambered in. Should be fun to see. And yes, I know I left off a ton of great cartridges, but I couldn’t have possibly listed all of them. Feel free to comment if you were left out.
