I have used a 30-06 now and then but my stand by is a 243... Doesn't have as much "knock down power", but I just like it..

Mostly a Winchester model 70 classic in .270 Winchester, or a model 88 and 100 Winchester.

I use a Parker-Hale in .270 Win for deer, black bear, and elk.

Although I'm primarily a bowhunter in recent years, when rifle hunting I use a Browning A-bolt in 30-06. My son has the same rifle in 7mm-08.
Once in a while I'm partial to the lever guns in 30-30 and .35 remington. Just kind of like carrying them around I guess.

Depending on the size of game I maygo to my 30-06 but I really like my .25-06 as an allaround awsome rifle. Mostly for Caribou, wolves and the occasional Moose.

I use my Rem 700 in .308 for deer size creatures but my favorite is my Rem sendero SF in 300 RUM that I will use for moose, bear, and probably deer as well. I have not hunted with it yet but the range sessions are unbelievable.

I love my heavy shilen ss barreled 700 in 6mm rem for everything up to deer size, after that, I blow the dust off my shilen ss barreled sporter .300 win mag rem 700.

I have a heavy "Hart" barrel 700 in 6mm and love it. What a calibre! I have a 220 swift in the same config. and love that as well but the 6mm is an outstanding round for coyotes(the 220 swift is no push-over either)
