    Figured it'd be interesting to see the different cartridges everyone enjoys shooting. My favorites are:

    Handgun
    10mm
    .45 ACP
    .454 Casull
    500 S&W Magnum

    Rifle
    204 Ruger
    243 Winchester
    6.5 Creedmoor
    7mm Remington Magnum
    416 Remington Magnum
    45-70 Government
    50 BMG

    Somebody is going to nitpick and tell you that you asked about calibers and listed cartridges. I don't care, and knew what you meant, because it's common vernacular.

    Perhaps this post of mine will stop 'em?

    Doubt it.

    Good catch! I updated the OP and the title, although the actual title probably won't update. Thanks for letting me know! I've fallen in the habit of just referring to them as calibers.

    Tough question. Guess I like 'em all or I wouldn't have so many dies and molds.
