44 mag 240 nosler HP over H110
I use a 30-30 Marlin 336, a STG58 FAL, and a Mosin Nagant M44 (203 grain SPs) during deer season.
.308 for every and anything. I have found it to be a very well rounded round to use and not too big for smaller game and not too small for the bigger game. Plus ammo is fairly cheap and the accuracy is great. It is not a .270 but it will hit what i shoot at. I trust it up to 300 yard's.
.30-06 loaded w/Remington Cor-Lokt 180 gr.
Whack 'em dont track 'em.
12 Gauge 2 3/4in Remington Slug
308 150gr Winchester Power Point
T/C Contender, 7-30 Waters 120 gr. Sierra Gameking BTSP-FN.
T/C Omega, .50 cal 250 gr. Barnes TMZ over 3 50/50 pellets of 777.
my gun of choice is my Ruger mk77 338 winnie mag
i just ordered it! goin to pick it up from the gun dealer soon ive got a Ruger mk77 stainless with wood stock in 300 winnie its a bad mother!!!! had a muzzle brake put on it and the guys who shoot next to me get mad ha ha ha !!! they tell me to move to another area cause the noise and pressure ithink it's funny ....... cant wait till i take the old 338 out!!! the 7 rem mag is a nice round but it will blow up at close range if you use a light bullet and damage alot of meat. but heavy bullets work awsome the 160 fail safe is a bad ass bullet . if any one has advice about the 338 winnie let it fly!!!

7.62X39-don't remember the round. Some soft point, not FMJ. Only rifle I had at the time.
.35 Remington in a Marlin 336. 200 grain and 150 grain Remington Core Lokt.
Browning BAR Safari II in .300 Winchester Magnum. 180 grain and 150 grain Core Lokt. 150 grain Core Lokt blew up and absolutely ruined the buck's meat. Half of the meat was wasted.
.35 Whelen built on a 1909 Argentine Mauser action. 220 grain Remington Core Lokt.
Most of my shots have resulted in dead deer. I've had one doe shot with a .35 Remington Core Lokt that fell down right there and didn't kick for fifteen minutes. The rifle jammed up when I tried to chamber another round. To the point that tools were required to relieve it. Tools I didn't have with me. When I came down from the stand , the doe ran off. Hair on the ground the size of a dinner plate. Looked for that deer for four hours in a frozen beaver swamp. 16 degrees Fahrenheit. Never found it.
Probably about 75% of the rounds have gone entirely through the deer. Out of the ones that didn't, every single one had fragmented with the jacket separating from the core. This has me wondering if maybe I should choose another bullet rather than Remington Core Lokt. Not having a problem with accuracy or lethality. The deer I haven't been able to find were generally due to not being able to find them in the dark as they were shot just before the end of legal hunting at dusk.
12ga smoothbore / Bow.
30-06. Either 165 or 180 grain.
45-70 Magnum 350 grain JFN from Buffalo Bore. It's a bit much for our Texas deer, but I don't have to track them... ever.
