My roomate uses a 5.56, with great results.
I used a 30-06 this season for the first time... uh... lol, a little overkill in my opinion.
Destroyed 3 ribs on the entrance, zipped open the stomach, and blew the right shoulder into mush...
I took the shot as he was quartering away, hence the trajectory. A broadside double lung would have been better, but hey, in thick brush, you take what you can.
Most everyone I know uses a .270... seems like a good cartridge...
