Hmmm... good first post! Welcome to the forum. We should talk more.

I like the 270WSM; I've shot deer and moose with it, although for bigger game I tend to step up to one of my 338 Win Mag's. My daughter shoots a 7mm-08 or a 308 for everything. The more I see the 7mm-08 in action, the more it impresses me.

Hoacky SMOKES Batman! What if the original question was, "best rifle for shootin'.......mice?" It didn't mention what game they were talkin' about chasin'!

If that was the question then I'm affeard you guys an' gals is 'bin blowin' them poor little critters to kingdom come! You should never "assume" anything, 'cause you know what that means! Right?

After readin' all your posts, I only saw one person even mention the poor little .22 rimfire. The .22 rimfire is my favorite calibre. Oh sure, not for blowin' away african elephants or charging polar bears, but she's one sweet little package.

You can buy a decent .22 for a reasonable dollar value that won't break the bank. You can shoot it all day long without having to take out a loan. If you opt to go backpacking, a .22 makes a neat little survival package and you can plink with a .22 all year long without spooking the neighbors near out of their socks. It's a great calibre to break a child into the shooting sports too.

Up until a few years ago, I had almost 10 x .22 calibre firearms, and loved shooting everyone of them.... and could afford to do it too!

Oh sure, I've got them blunderbusts too, like a .50 cal smokey and a .243 varminter and I've had 30-06s and .308s, but there's just something about that little .22 that just captures the kid in me every time.

I figure my next acquisition in the firearms department will liklely be a .22 WRFM. I've always had my eye on a Anshutz sporter in .22 WRFM, but it kind'a blows away my argument about .22s being economical!
