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.




I was wondering when you were going to speak up on this one with your name here being inspired by one of the great old obsolete cartridges of all time. \:\) I've always wanted a Winchester 71 but just haven't gotten around to it yet. The only thing I have that's really an oldie is a 1894 Marlin(new manufacture gun) in 32-20 but it's not really a deer rifle by modern standards.

Rem 700 6mm used to be my favorite (now my oldest boys favorite) most of the time use my savage ml, but love to pull out the 30-30 for the thick stuff.
