    That is quite surprising... If only Ohio was that passive on what you shoot. Here you're lucky if you can use a rifle to hunt whatever game you are after.

    I'm pretty well sold on the .308 as the best all around chambering, but lately I've been tinkering with a .25-06 in a Handi Rifle that I will eventually give to my grandson. A hand loader can easily make it be a varmint gun, or a great deer rifle. It's good.

    Where I go hunting its for bull moose and white tails so i have my trusty browning a-bolt in 30-06 with 180 gr. bullets and everybody in my cabin has the same so we all use the same ammo. 30-06 is lots of fire power and cheap and easy to find. can't go wrong with it.

    The 25-06 has been my go to gun for whitetails here in Pa for many years , infact long before Remington decided to make it a factory chambering.It has never let me down.

    30.06 drops them every time. If you get them in the neck its definately a downed deer.

    I've changed my mind since first replying to this thread.

    I've gotten two deer with two shots from my .30-06, in a brand new (never fired, perfect finish) 1964 Model 70 Winchester that I ran across, a few months back. So, how could I not love the .30-06?
