CR, congrats on the published article and on your successful hunt. While the debate will always go on regarding the desire/need for the big guns for deer, it always comes down to what trips your trigger, no pun intended. I am heading the other way but like the 358 with a really old bullet Sav 250-3000 a pipsqueak compared to the big stuff. Today, I find simple enjoyment hunting with older rifles in calibers that have nearly bit the dust. I am always looking for a Rem 141 in 32,35 cal in real clean condition.
Anyway, again it was good reading!
