Jimrau Fine your opinion, thats fine. Turns out 95 snipers 280 rem is a great choice for a kinda do it all cartidge. Guess that would do for just one cartidge. Just gota know when to let game walk on and use the right bullet for the job. Not a big bear cartidge maybe not a good moose cartidge and surely not a good choice of smaller game but a good generial use one.

I man everyone new where I grew up used a 22 hornet for all most his whole life. Man has made more good kills than should be possible on trophy sized hogs, black bear, deer and gators. For him that was his perfect cartidge.

And your point is????
I am not saying which caliber/cartridge is best, what I am saying is if you keep an open mind and use science you will find which caliber/cartridge is the 'best' for a given application!
The problem is there are many people who are uninformed and/or do not understand terminal ballistics to even chose the 'best' bullet for a given application, let alone the right 'combination' of platform/caliber/bullet!!!

.7mm magnum has been my rifle of choice for elk and deer. I've made clean kills out to 800 yards with my rifle and have never even thought about the killing potential. It shoots flat and hits hard and in my model 700 I feel almost no recoil

Absolutely .... Use objective data to solve subjective problems. An unlimited "best round" for the unlimited number "given applications" ;-)

In other words if you use the scientific method and have the right info you can increase the probability of using the right weapon/caliber/bullet combination for ANY intended purpose, but as I said above VERY few people have the ability to do this and when they do they are invariably belittled and put down by those who disagree.
Read the last two lines of the above post.

Remington CoreLokt in .308 or 30-06. CoreLokts are accurate, inexpensive, and they put the deer down.
