    I'd have to pick my old Winchester model 70, 30.06 with plain old green and yellow box 180 gr. PSP core lokts.(my Dad gave it to me when I was 12, it was his and he got a .338) I've used my dad's .338 model 70 on one bull, for sentimental reasons after he passed away and took the last 2 with a 300RUM, but I still will have to say that old .06 is my favorite! All that said I like my MZ and Bow too, I just haven't had that many opportunities with them yet!

    I have said this before in other threads, but if you are hunting elk on public land, it is imperative that you kill your animal DIT. Otherwise, you are likely to find that someone else has tagged your elk, if you ever find it at all. The best caliber that I have found for DIT is a .358 Norma Magnum using a Speer 250 gr. Grand Slam bullet. I have found it to be more effective than the .375 H & H Magnum or the .35 Whelen that I used previously. Elk hit the dirt like they were struck by the Hammer of Thor. It is also a bit of fun to use something that you do not come across every day.

    340 Weatherby Mark V with 210 Nosler partitions works best for me...and my wife. It also works good on moose, antelope, deer, buffalo, kudu, duiker, steenbok warthogs, duikers, hartebeest, blesbok, gemsbok, bears, coyotes and grouse. I bet it would work good on halibut too.

    270 is generally my first choice for everything, but I also like ML hunts and I like my old 30-30 carbine in heavy timber where I wont be shooting to far.

    300WM with 165 Barnes. Only gun I hunt with both deer and elk. If we get in the brush, I will take all my old 180's to use them up.
