Default What is Your Favorite Hunting Round?

If you got BS with you don't leave it here.

I shoot as much as I can and it's not enough...but I have grown to favor a few rounds for hunting. While I enjoy shooting most everything I pretty much only hunt with a very limited number of rifles but it is a decision I make every time it take to the woods.

I have shot most everything I can afford and can find to shoot and have found that my most enjoyable rounds to shoot while hunting Whitetail Deer are....somewhere in the mix of 30TC, 300RCM, 6.5 Creedmoor and .25WSSM.

What's your Favorite Hunting Round?

I completely understand that.

7mm:08 is a Great Round and a Pleasure to shoot.

I have it in several Rifles and it is a favorite in a Ruger M77 Compact.

I love that one too.

2x lighter round and it does the job. I have a Marlin X7 and i shoot Barnes 120 grains. I have a boyds laminate stock that makes it a little heavier but still a lighter gun to carry in the woods and climbin up the tree. lol

7 rem mag for all my bean field hunts and clear cut spots. But.. in my opinion the gun itself is probably more important than the caliber. A good clean trigger and a good barrel can make all the difference in the world. I shoot a ruger #1 falling block, and it's a heavy gun, which equals very little recoil . Having a lite recoil puts my brain at ease when pulling the trigger. Now having said all that back to the caliber, the 7 rem mag has the knock down power that I like. I know I shouldn't say this....but have never lost a deer with it. "Probably cursed forever now " Lol. Prior to this gun I shot a 30-06 and a .308. I killed a lot of deer with both,but I lost a few as well. That's what made me step up to a belted magnum. This is my favorite it doesn't have to be yours. Whatever you can shoot comfortably and accurately with good knock down power is what you should go with.
