This sounds like a discussion on which deer to kill. Or what color hair the prettiest ladies have. Shoot what you feel comfortable with. Plenty of good choices out there. Hunt and enjoy.

338 win mag.

i have killed them at over 400yds more times than i can count.

it has more ft/lbs @ 500yds than some do at the muzzle.

just kidding! i really like it but that's me. the true answer is which ever one you can shoot the best.
