I think the 30.06 is most likely one of the best all-around guns.

My favourite calibre is .35/.358.

I have several rifles chambered in .35 calibre cartridges. I like the .358 Win. the best, but I'd prefer it if I could get it in a pump or autoloader. My moose gun is a Remington 7600 in .35 Whelen.

with that said i couldnt live without my 22-250.

for years and years i used an old enfield .303, the bloody thing weighed a ton but it was well used
That Enfield sounds like it was similar to my dad's favorite rifle. It was his M1 Guarand, and weighs 9.5lbs. The very first time I went hunting alone I used that rifle. I was in the woods still hunting for 8 hours. When I got home that evening my arms were like jelly. It was the last time I used it for hunting.

I have never lost an animal from overkill (7mm rem mag for me 25-06 for the wife here in VA.)

I have two my most favorite is my 257 Roberts on Winchester action, new Nosler 115 for anything form squirrel to mule deer.
Then I step up to 264 Win Mag. lovingly named AT&T. It'll reach out and touch something.

For Bears I switch to my Vectrix.


Life is good !! Hunting 365 in Hawaii?.....Priceless
