    30.06 all the way for my hunting needs. I am also digging the 25.06 due to less recoil and kills just as good as the 30.06. Esox357.

    I've never shot a hog, a few deer though. I'm in a toss up right now of my favorite caliber, the 7mag or the 325WSM. They both have done very well for me.

    Up north, I like the .270

    Down here, I have really busted up these smaller deer with the .270 so I began carrying the .243 in the woods more.

    But shoot what YOU shoot well.

    .308 or 30-06 depending on which rifle I feel like carrying.

    If you really want to know the truth, I'd prefer to use a 100 gr Montec attached to a Goldtip shaft.

    Small to medium game = .22 WMR
    2-legged game = .45 ACP/.223
    All the above = 12ga.
