Personally for me it has been the 7MM Rem. mag.
I am not one to have problems with people using larger calibers though! As they say, " you can' t kill ' em too dead" !

I have taken deer with all different calibers but the biggest one I ever used was a .300 Weatherby,just a little over-gunned... []
