30-30, it might not be fancy but it works. I learned a long time ago that I'm not capable of really long range shooting, I keep my shots to under 200 yards and the gun doesn't beat me up when I pull the trigger.

I use a 7mm Win Mag. when I gun hunt here in WI. I know a lot a people don't like to hear it, but I really wish they would make this state shotgun only. I really believe it help get the deer numbers where the dnr want them and there would be a lot more quality bucks. At least in the southern part of the state.
