I am in the 30-06 camp and have used one for everything from chucks, yotes, deer, elk and caribou. I can understand the position nomercy and RR put out though. If I were to buy another deer gun it might be 7mm-08.

That was the funniest thing I've read in a while except the Democrats saying they want to do what's right for the people!

I've spent most of my life hunting with a Ruger Stainless Synthetic .300 Win Mag but sold it a couple years ago and quit hunting. I now have the bug again but this year I bought a little CVA Hunter single shot .243 and put a Tasco World Class scope on it (yeah it's a cheapo but surprisingly good). I got older and didn't want to lug the cannon around anymore so bought this. I finally got to sight it in today and am thoroughly amazed.

BTW: I think I used to be a member of this forum under the name of warbirdlover but my e-mail didn't get recognized so "joined" again. Not a spike anymore LOL. I'm 73 years old.
