    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.
    My Avatar is in Honor of my Great-Great Grandfather, Brigadier General Dudley M. DuBose.
    Flag is the Sole surviving Battle Flag of the 15th Ga Infantry Regt.. He was the Commandant (Col.) for the first 3 years of the War,
    Promoted Commandant (Brig Genl) of Bennings Brigade in late 1863
    Bennings Brigade has the distinction of serving in more battles than any other Confederate Unit,
    Has the honor of also being the most decorated Confederate Unit of the War
    My photo is of him

    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!
