all around rifle for North America

I wanted to do a poll on wich rifle you would choose out of these calibers if you had to choose one rifle for all your big game hunting.

I picked from the choices you provided. Although, If it were my poll the 338 win. would definately be one of the options, and it would be my choice.

I'd also choose a .338 WM and wouldn't have a problem with it on pronghorn with an appropriate load. Say 200 grain / 2900 - 3000 fps.

I thought this was a fiarly straightfoward and simple question....out of these calibers,wich would you choose to hunt North American big game with,the 338 wm is not on the list so if you dont want to participate in the poll please dont post about calibers NOT on the list.Thanx

I agree with the 338 win mag, If I had to choose onw gun it would be the 338, Reason being, If I was going to hunt ALL North American game with one rifle I would want the one that would take that brown bear or moose without much difficulty. Yes I would use it on an antelope if I only had to have one rifle. Dead is Dead.

Nonya, why in the world would you run a poll on a forum if you DON'T want to know other people's favorites?

Look at how you titled this thread & your first post. It leads a person to believe you are asking for a favorite all around caliber. If that is the case then your list is sorely lacking. People obviously don't care for the ones you've listed.

If you had a specific reason for posting this poll, then you should have said so. Like you're maybe shopping for a new rifle from the calibers listed?? or other reason??

I personally would go for a 30-06!

I did the poll because these calibers were listed in a poll in a issue of North American Hunter Magazine last fall as the new favorites and in thew poll the two ultra mags took 90% of the vote wich I found completly unbelievable so i thought it would be simple enough to run the poll here and compare results,how wrong i was!I guess when you make things too simple they get complicated,it was a waste of time ,i will regret it the rest of my life...LOL

I think it's a great selection for all around rifles.
When I think of all around. It's hard to beat my Browning Micro Hunter in 300wsm. Ready to hunt at 7.+ lbs. and enough wallup, at the receiving end, to drop anything in these lower 48 with some assurance.

You are the one making a big deal out of it. I voted, and stated my opinion. If you don't like it, deleted your original post and this business will go away altogether. If not, then KMA. thats kiss my ..... Are you a lawyer? I think the poll is lacking the most versatile caliber myself. If you don't like my opinions, tough. I wouldn't use the 8 mm mag for antelope either smart@$$ but it is part of your poll. Now that I've got my blood pressure up I think I will leave and never return to this god-forsaken forum. Evil!
