I have harvested with a 30-06 and 300 weatherby mag. I have used a 6.8, 50 Cal ML, 30-30, 257 weatherby mag. I currently own the 257 wby vanguard, 6.8, and ML. That's all. Eventually I want to upgrade my weatherby to an Accumark in the same cartridge. Even though I haven't harvested anything with it, the cartridge is amazing. The new 6.5-300 wby mag they just came out with looks bad to the bone.

I tend to stick with one rifle for a long time. Started out with a 30-06, then had two .308's, these have harvested the vast majority of my Deer. I've occasionally shot one with my 7X57 (over under, 7X57, 12 gauge) and occasionally with my 35 Rem.

I have .308 ballistics imprinted in my brain and know within a minute of angle what it is going to do out to around 400 yards. Half a minute of angle out to around two hundred. If it ain't broke don't fix it.

12 gauge, 20 gauge, 410, 50 cal muzzleloader, 357 mag, 44 mag, 7mm-08, 270, soon to be adding 450 bushmaster to this list. I have used 6 different 12 gauges and 3 different 357 mag guns to take deer with. Compound bow and recurve crossbow. Ford Probe and Dodge Dakota. The Dodge still drives and the little car was totalled.

I think I just hit 13 deer (NH we don't get as many chances as others!):

6 with .30-06
7 with compound bow (65 lbs)
I've missed with a 12 guage (and the bow and the rifle :-( )

410, way safer than a frangible car, just be picky about your shots with a 410
