Default Whitetail Cartridge Choice

Ok - I wanted to pickup where Hunting Man left off with a new thread on the caliber of choice for whitetail hunting. Hunting Man listed several preferred calibers while I like the .25-06-.270 range. Nobody is right or wrong here unless you believe in deer hunting with a .22 then a debate may start amongst members.

Just to make sure everyone understands, my list comprised the bullets that have killed the most deer not the most popular bullets of today/yesterday. The two may be the same but this is where I hope others would post their lists. This was a historical observation/debate.

debate away just no personal attacks
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

Like I said in the other thread. I think huntingman's list of all time deer killing calibers is real close if not dead on.
