I will always love my 303 british (inherited from my Grandfather) but it's hard to beat my 308 norma mag for my big game hunting. Loved plinking on the farm with my Cooey 22's growing up and still use them for birds.
M1 garand and 1903 Springfield, if it wasn't for these two rifles we would all probably be goose stepping today!!! and who couldn't love the work horse of America the 30-06 one of the finest rounds ever developed!!!
If you run your just going to die tired!!!
