I vote for the 30-06....But....

I really don't think there is a lot of difference on the animal whether you chose any of the standard cartridges. If a person likes a short action bolt rifle the 7mm-08 or 308 win are wonderful. For those of us that like long action bolt rifles the 270win, 280rem, 30-06 are all interchangable looking at what they do on the other end. One might fly faster/flatter but once they hit the animal it is other factors. If the correct weight bullet for the cartidge is used in a bullet construction correct for what a hunter is hunting, I don't see anyone going wrong with any of the 5. It sure is fun arguing over the fire. Let's just remember how lucky we are to be able to choose from such a wonderful selection of choices.

Amen to that! Let's not forget this coming November how far this current administration has gone to take that choice away from us.

Thanks Karl for bringing that to our attention.

I prefer the term "Constructive Debate" regarding our discussions here. We've had a few disagreements from time to time that may have led to arguments but most times we simply give constructive debate. Some may even refer to our discussions as opinions .... naw, that never happens here does it? Besides everyone knows the 300 savage is the overall best most beloved deer getting cartridge ever developed!

Now HM, I could have sworn (yup, there I go again . . . swearin') that the most beloved of deer getting cartridges was the .30/30. It's brought down more deer than most of the rest of them combined. I'm not takin' anything from the .300 Savage, got one (from my grand pappy) and I still use it . . . just saying that I'd bet anyone a dozen doughnuts that the .30/30 is the most beloved for "all time".

P.S. Now if that don't stir up a hornets nest with this bunch, nothin' will!!!

Okay, I'll bite.

Two reasons:

1. Romance.
2. They want one.

It was a good round in it's day which made it popular, and it still kills deer just as well now as it did then. My dad, my brother and I all grew up with the old western movies and TV shows. We have more than one Winchester 30-30 among us. I think they are great guns, just not as practical as they once were. Still, there is something about them that is intriguing. I recently looked into getting one, but they charge a lot of money for nostalgia these days.

May I have one of each please......

A wise person (Will Rodgers) said he never met a person he didn't like. I think that I have never picked up/or shot a rifle/pistol/shotgun that I wouldn't mind having. There are definitely some that appeal to me more than others. If someone loves the rifle/pistol/shotgun that they have, then it is perfect...
