Deer, hogs, elk, bison, red stag, and about anything else that needs put down, a custom Czech Mauser in 7mm Rem. Mag. A 160 grain Nosler partition has worked well every time. I have a Ruger #3 in 45/70, a 7x57 Chilean Mauser, 2 .54 cal. Hawkens, 2 .41 mag Rugers, and a .45 long colt, plus others. Pretty well set, of course I want more, who doesn't. The Czech is just extremely accurate and between zero and 300, just put in the boiler room, down they go. Good huntin' all.

284 Win. In my opinion the first "short mag" without the name.

Elk - Remington m700 BDL in .270 win
Sidearm - Springfield XDm 3.8 in .40 S&W

Last year I took an elk with a borrowed 30-06, this year I hope I can have some luck with my own rifle.
