My favorite one (that I still kick myself for selling) was a left handed Browning Stainless Stalker in .270

It shot nice little ragged holes at 100 yards with 130 gr. Nosler Ballistic Tipsand dropped everything I shot with it in its tracks.........dang I miss that gun!!!!

Remington model 700 in 35 Whelen is my favorite gun for deer/elk. Have only taken one elk with it, two caribou, and maybe 50 deer..... but they all wnt down & didn't get back up.
