I guess i'm the oddball here. I use a weatherby mark 5 sporter with a 270 grain in 375 h&h mag. Good for 300 yrds, wont bloodshot the meat and they drop where they stand. Can't ask for more than that.
I guess I must be the ole'foggey because I use a Marlin 336 Lever action in .30-.30 using Hornady's new LeveRevolution ammo. But, where I hunt in Michigan, I won't be making shots any longer than 50-60 yards. I mounted a 3-9x40 scope from Cabela's and I'm good to go. I don't need a monster caliber, I try to make a good clean, ethical shot. Heck, there are hunters out there taking large whitetail with .223's. I think that's great!
