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.
Right on ...ya might as well ask what's the best truck to drive!
everybody knows its a f-250 right \:D

I was always partial to the 30-06 but this year I used a .270 that I bought and was actually more impressed with the .270

Buy one of each, you can never have to many rifles.

I like the .358 Winchester in a Remington Model 7.

Can't go wrong with a 30-06!


But a 270 WIN shoots faster, flatter, farther, less kick, and just as effective at the terminal end.

The 30-06 is probably the most versatile of all rifles for all of North America, but it's probably not the best at anything.


The 30-06 was designed for power by our military, and my 1917 has flip-ups up to 1600 yards (not that u cud spot a deer that far) so farther's questionable. 30-06 is best at being versatile.

For deer only, anything based on the 308 WIN will work GREAT. The 260 REM is the best, with the 7mm-08 a close second.

I got a question about short range shots. I have a 30-30 Winchester and I hear its a good round for up to 100 yards do you all agree with that?
