I usually only pull out the .340 if I am hunting deer and elk during the same season.  You never know when you are going to need that little bit more power.

How does that cannon kick? Just curious how does meat look on a deer  with that thing?

If you are target shooting you will know that you are shooting a small cannon but if I am going to do a lot of shooting with it I'll put the muzzle brake on since it is removable.  As far as meat loss as long as you don't hit it in the shoulder it is no different than any other round and it may be a lot less due to the velosity and a deer being a thin skin animal.

I shoot a .270 and .300 for Elk and deer. It's all about shot placement anyways. I have hunted deer with a lever action .44 also. I never would have thought of getting a collection like Critter has although I would like to have it.

Between the 270 and 30-06 I

Between the 270 and 30-06 I am going with the 270 for everything but the big bears. Just personal preference. There is nothing wrong with the ol springfield I just don't have a desire to own a rifle chambered for a cartridge that literally EVERYONE owns.
