A lot of it depends on just WHAT you're hunting. You want a manageable caliber, and we don't shoot squirrels with .50 calibers. Well, not if we want anything left of it.
What I'd hunt down south with for deer is different that what I'd hunt yankee deer with, simply due to the size of them.
Bigger isn't always better. Range you're shooting at is also a factor, since some calibers have a flatter trajectory, thus, more accurate over range, but less stopping power at distance, whereas others fly almost like a football pass, and 'drop' into the target.
There's a ton of variables that one should address when determining what they want. Boom or buck? I'll take the buck, so I can grill that puppy.
