300 win mag and 30-06 both scored this season for a total of 3 deer.

Carried my 270 and 3030 a few times but no meat.

Carried a 7-08 twice and shot a buck but lost him.

My deer rifle is a 25-06 and it loves the 115 grain balistic tips by winchester. Deer do not love this combination.

We partly succeed this year in trying to kill one deer for each claiber we own. 06, 280, and 243 scored. No ML, 22-250, 7mm08, or 300 WinMag. Going to do it again next year.
