    I don't remember who said it, but it goes, A 30-06 IS NEVER A BAD CHOICE!

    I tend to agree, especially in our neck of the woods. 180 grain bullet out of one of them can be deadly on just about any species.

    While I don't have any tags this year, my rifle of choice is my Rem. model 700 ADL in 7mm mag that I bought on lay-away at Big-5 back in 1980. I shoot Core-Lokt ammo 99.9% of the time in either 150 or 175 grain.
    Back-up is an identical rifle in .270 that I bought for my wife in 1983 only in BDL trim, much prettier than mine.
    When all the trees have been cut down, when all the animals have been hunted, when all the waters are polluted, when all the air is unsafe to breathe, only then will you discover you cannot eat money.

    50 caliber muzzleloader - Utah Deer. I tagged out.

    Getting ready to hunt Utah deer with my 2 sons. They will be carrying a .243 and a .270 WSM. The WSM is my favorite caliber as of late. Then both boys will be shooting the .270 WSM for a late season cow elk hunt.

    Slugz.... I have two 30-06?s. My inherited Remington 721 from my grandfather which I?ve used on deer and elk open sights. Just bought a new Browning X Bolt Hunter 30-06 topped with a Nightforce SHV 4-14x56 three days ago. Has not been shot yet, soon though, after I get back from my elk hunt. I?m with ya on that caliber.

    Always my .300 win Tikka lite with vortex 4-16x50. Shooting partitions. But I have shot barnes before and that worked well too. Might give move up to 190 or 200 gr though, haven't decided.

    In the olden days, 25 years ago ...280 AI (before it was standardized & famous) with a 160 gr Partition at about 2,950 fps and changed to a BT and it was an error ! Should have stayed with the Partition! Next hunt will either be the with the same load/gun or be with a 300 Wthby and 180 Swift Scirocco bonded core at 3,150 fps. It gives me something to ponder on long nights in the winter !
