    35R....am going to edit this because it might be the 7x57....but I think the 35 has the most game taken honors - when I used the old mauser I had a lot of years where no game was taken or shots fired for that matter....

    ......just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get me.....

    375 H&H, In a Ruger RSM Magnum Rifle. Very versatile cartridge when handloaded.
    Sold the Rifle and associated accessories a while back, Getting too old to lug a 10 pounder around in the brush.

    I bounced around with a lot of different rifles over the years, trying this and that. Shot game with all sorts of cartridges from .223 to .375 H&H, .45/70 Marlin and a traditional .50 cal muzzle loader.

    Somewhere in there I settled on the .25-06 for most of my mule deer hunting. It's also worked great on pronghorn antelope.

    Last season, I went back to the good ol' .30-06 and did real well with it, taking bear, elk, mule deer & pronghorn. It was quite a season!

    Regards, Guy

    And when its hot. ive told many people, carry a 8 pound gun up a mountain when it 90 degrees. 6 pounds much better!
