whats yer favorite rifle caliber

Yes Im partial to an'06. you can get loads off the shelf from 55 grain accelerator all the way to 220 corelokt. thats a darn wide variety. that being said, reecoil isnt bad, proven in battle, in the deer, bear, elk and moose wood time and time again. 100 years old, and still kickin a#@! i have a .243, great whitetail , antelope , v armint rifle, a7 mm mag i just recently acquired and love, save for the trigger, but that will be fixed soon. recently (last week) got a win 70 classic featherweight in 270 win, parkerized stainless with wood stock, new. had to. wont see any more coming out of conn. a wise choice. any of the above , and all previously mentioned are great, but my fav is a win 70, '06 bolt action with scope or peep sight.

Wuts your favorite rifle caliber

this is my first post. there are so many wonderful rounds out there, and I admit I have not tried them all, but I love the 25.06 and the 22-250 and for whatever reason the .22 magnum is a fun round.

Welcome to the Forum! I too enjoy the 22 Magnum in a Henry Lever Action rifle and that 25-06 is one under-rated / undervalued rifle too.

Wuts your favorite rifle caliber

I probally already posted on this so I'm probally going to call myself a liar here. TODAY, I am partial to 7mm's, the 7x57 and the 280 Rem. But this year I'm using a 6.5x55. I also have a strong afliction for 6.5's. Last year my favorite was my 6.5-06 and the year befor my 25-06 with my 308 win for elk. Now if I were allowed to have only one, it would be a 280 Rem,,,,,,,,,,a 7x57 behind the door, a 6.5x55 in the closet and the 6.5-06 under the bed. I'd keep the 25-06 at my son's because he thinks it's his anyway! That ought to narrow things down somewhat. Big smile

Ok why not put mine on here too as this is such a friendly forum.
30-06 for big game
223 for coyotes and smaller
17 for gophers and plinking
22lR for gophers and plinking
These are the best hands down. Ok before I get shot, there the best because they are what I have and what I use. I would love to own more calibers to use but hardly have time to enjoy the ones I have. Of course my son now would argue that that the 270win is the best round. Asking this question is a little like asking what car handles the best, well it really comes down to drivers and even then it comes down to driving style, what kind of tires they have on at the time.
