    7mm Rem Mag: Good bullet selection and will cleanly kill anything North America has to offer except maybe brown bear/grizzly. Good caliber for my needs as I've never shot at an animal over 400 yards.

    300 Win Mag

    Ammo is very available pretty much anywhere

    Great ballistics

    I have went to all 300 so I don't have multiple different brands and loads.

    I love my 7mm mag. I launch 180 grain Berger VLD bullets out of it.

    I was a 7mm WSM nut for years. But the ammo is pretty much impossible to find.

    I really like my 280AI but I have to hand load for it. I wouldn’t consider any non standard caliber a good “all around” caliber.
    .270, 30-06,7mm, .300 Win Mag. Anything else is ego or just plain wanting to be different.

    My fav all around cartridge is the 280 Remington. Mine launches 145gr LRX's over 3,000fps, loves 175gr partitions too. Nothing in NA I can't effectively take with it. Lethal, moderate recoil, plenty of range, no magnum muzzle blast. Suits me well. Plenty of ammo available too, but if that's a concern, a 270 or 30-06 are similar stable mates.

    My fav hunting round is a 25-06. Pole axes medium game and with the right pills is lethal on elk. If I was just starting out, I might very well develop a relationship with a svelte 6.5CM and keep a 30-06 around for anything mean or larger than an elk.

    And because we love to shoot we will keep buying them and keep the industry looking for new options.

    I am set up for 168 go Berger for my 7mm. Looking back I wish I had done the 180, however I have enough RWS 177 to last me. I can and do use Remington Core-Lokt, mostly 150. The Berger has proven to 2nd most accurate, RWS beats it. I like reloading and my brother and I have a dedicated reloading room with everything we need. We did that for insurance when it looked like the government would make it impossible to find ammo. I love shooting the Bergers.
    Shooting brown Bear is not going to happen so why go to a punishing caliber? Matter of fact with a do over I would probably be 25-06

    Funny how our addictions/hobbies fuel whole industries.
