    Figured this might stir up a little debate, what are your thoughts?

    30-06 165 grain Hornady Interbond.... Same bullet for everything from antelope to moose. I think I may be drifting towards species specific rifles but for now this is the all around gun and load for me.

    Yup it's hard to go wrong with this rifle/bullet combo. Though I'm sticking to my 7mm mag. It has never let me down. 150 grain for deer and antelope and 175 grain for elk.

    270 Win, 130 Rem Core-Lokt. Always does the job done when I do mine

The other one's got a rattlesnake With a simple statement made "Don't tread on me" is what it says and I'll take that to my grave. Because this is me. I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I've said it before but I'll say it again 'Cause my family's always fought and died to save this land. And a country boy is all I'll ever be."

    I have to agree with Guy on this one, but what fun would it be to limit yourself to one caliber?! If I had to limit myself to only one rifle from my safe, it would probably be my .300 Weatherby. But I'm having fun with all of them, from .22 to .375!

    7mm is my go to caliber because that's what I have. But, the 30cal having a bigger range of bullets is so true.

    First for me it would be .30 caliber. Hard to choose between my trusty 30-06 or my great .300 Wby. If I was going to have just one for all North American game, it would have to be the Weatherby because it does such a great job with the 180 & 200 grain bullets for elk, moose & bear.

    I like my 7mm Rem Mag with a Nosler 160 bullet. Used it on everything from Coues deer to Alaska Yukon moose. When it speaks something is going to hit the ground.
