Most recently, .416 Rem. Mag.
.300 WSM 180 grain power points
Federal 2 3/4" tru-ball slugs
250 grain harnady sst's with 100 grains of pyrodex
Rem 700P - 308 (yeah, that's cheating)
Win 70 - 300 WSM (long distance reach out & touch 'em)
what round do you hunt deer with
7mm-08 with 139 grain hornady light magnum ammunition...mule deer.
.30-06; 180 grain... I've yet to miss one (with the .30-06) in almost ten years.
7mm-08 in Win Mod 70 Compact Classic or 357 in Marlin 1894C
The first mule deer I shot was back in 1953 with a Mdl 70 270 Win rifle, The last one was in the 2005 season with a .264 Win Mdl 70 Win rifle. Between those years I have shot deer with 22-250 Rem, 243 Win , 257 Roberts, 25-06 Rem, and 308 Norma Mag rifles. Most of them were with one shot. If my old body will let me I may take out a Win 94 30 WCF Saddle Ring carbine Mfg 1932 but have the 264 Win as backup.
284 win 88 358win 88 444 marlin 44 S/B 7 1/2 inch 270 win 70
Have used 30/06 a lot, but also 30/30, 45/70, .357, and quite a few with a left-handed Tennessee Mountain Rifle flintlock using .50 patched round ball that I dearly love. I also shot a couple with the .375 Winchester. This is NOT a .375 Magnum type – it is really just a 30/30 necked up to .375. It’s a darn fine cartridge, but ammo is hard to find these days.
.30/30......30-06.....300 Weatherby Magnum...44 Magnum (rifle)....35 Remington....32 Winchester Special....12 ga.Shotgun (slug)...
500 S & W Magnum
.270 Winchester is very popular for "Bama whitetails~!
But, I would probably use either a .243 Winchester, or a
New Mexico here, and I hunt with either some 105gr JSP in .243, or for bigger deer and elk I go with the Federal Gold Medal Match in 168gr BTHP. I also do hunt or did till last year with a 30-30 but forget what I loaded up in those but they were pretty darn hot! Even got a 6X6 elk last year with my TR Commemerative Winchester 30-30 carbine!
I am getting inot handgun hunting now and have had a TC for about 5 years but have yet to use it for hunting. I'm going hunting feral pigs this March twice and am going to take the TC in 357mag or .44 mag if I get the 44 barrel. I will also take my 1984 in .357mag, M4 and one of my bows too as you can hunt non game species here in NM with any weapon...even a spear or knife!
Just added two more two deer rifle arsenal. A 270 WSM and a 6.5Carcano.
I don't hunt dear but I'd use a Federal 160-180 grain .30-06.
240WbyMagnum 95Gn Partition, 308W (single shot Baikal) 150/180Gn Corelokt), 375Win Big Bore factory ammo so far, 250Gn cast when that runs out.
For Sambar there is a 270 minimum, I used 3006/150Gns Sierra and 308/150Gn Corelokts in the past, now tote a 300WM, using factory ammo at the moment 180Gn Corelokts, 180 or 200 Gn Woodleighs after that, 444 Marlin, 290GnRNFP Cast custom Lee mould (group buy on another board). Maybe 458WM/Lott when it gets made up with 400Gn Speers (always loved them) or a cast boolit.
.30-06 from a Garand and 7.62x54R from a M44 and 91/30 sniper. just got the sniper, so i havent used it yet, but have used the M44. Something bout hunting with milsurps thats just so cool
35 rem or 7mm Rem Mag depending on location. I'd like to get something in a 308 or 7mm-08 though (Remington model seven?)

In Kansas the .243 is king very few Elk and .243 is good on Coyotes and
