You guys re: the .22 Mag sound like me. Of course the .22 LR is an absurd choice regardless how often it is parroted -- it is the weakest cartridge around and if somebody MADE you limit yourself to that you'd cry.
.22 Mag offers twice the power at least with the same features and benefits of the .22 LR except price basically.
As for the .30-30, at this point the 7.62x39mm or 6.8 SPC would probably be fair choices.
Do some guys just write the first thing they come up with or the last thing they heard? No offense meant. "Hey, remember, a .25-06 is a .25 like a .25 ACP except for more powder too."
