Really depends on the terrain/situation. I know a guy with a .444 Marlin and it works great in thick woods for close shots, but it would be horrible for open, long shots. I shoot 30-06 myself, but I don't see how one calibercan be"better" than another generally speaking.

No poll shows for me, but a .270 is my choice.

CaliberI like the .284 and cartridge in the .284 caliber a 7mm rem mag (which is not on your list). Which brings me to the list itself,which arecartridges not calibers!Caliber refers to the diameter of the bullet used and cartridge is in reference to thecase (brass). Many rifles share calibers but they don't not share cases. For ie: 308win, 3030, 3006, 300 all are in fact .308 caliber.

Sorry not meaning to be rude, but you should edit your poll to say "which cartridge" not caliber.

You left off the best one in my book.

7mm rem mag. I have 2 of them and a 7mm short action ultra mag and I love all three. Anything in a 7mm will take care of business.
