I have to think about what is my favorite firearm. There are sporter weight ,varmint weight rifles, preditor rifles, mule deer and pronghorn rifles, elk rifles, rimfire rifles,and big game woods rifles. A bolt, falling block, pump,semi auto, or lever action rifes are all fun to shoot. I use rifles chambered for the 17 HM2, 17 HMR, 17 Fireball, 204 Ruger, 243 Win, 270 Win, 340 W Mag, and 30-06 more often than others chambered rifles I have. But it must depend upon where and what Im hunting .
