    I'm a 270 or 7mm-08 man myself. No real reason beside they have been working for me for years.

    Oh yea, I prefer they leave the barrel of a Browning.

    A 30-30 does an excellent job of dropping deer with a behind-the-shoulder-on-third-of-the-way-up shot, but I prefer using the AR platform nowadays. I'm going to try for one this year with a Winchester .223 64gr Powerpoint.

    There's always the good ol' 470 Nitro Express in a H&H double rifle.

    30-06 mainly cause I'm used to "long action"....but 7.62X39, and 44MAG are also quite effective.
    Thanks,
