I used 30-30, 30-06, 7mm, and a couple .50 MZs this year. 30-30 is by far my favorite but I needed the 7mm or 30-06 for distance.

I love the 270 WIN and 30-30 WIN, but my last few bucks have actually been killed with a lesser known caliber called the 30 TC.

I often hunt with antique rifles in odd or obsolete calibers. This year I hunted with several different combinations.

Opening day I started off with an 1894 Winchester sporting rifle with a 26 inch octagon barrel in 32 Win. Special manufactured in 1903.

At different times throughout rifle season I hunted with the following rifles/calibers:

1895 Winchester 30-40 Krag (killed a large doe using a Western Silvertip cartridge that was at least 60 years old.

1895 Winchester 405 WCF.

Remington Model 14 30 Remington. Wounded and lost a nice buck, still sick about it.

1886 Winchester 45-70.

94 Winchester trapper 45 Colt

H&R Buffalo Classic 38-55 WCF

Model 71 Winchester 348 WCF.

Model 94 carbine in 32 spl

Model 94 carbine 25-35 WCF.

I really enjoy using the odd/obsolete calibers for a different twist. It's also makes for interesting conversation starters when someone asks what kind of rifle it is.
