Interested in the different calibers used for deer hunting beside the
usual, 30-30, 30/06, 308, 270, 243, etc?

Also, the ones who shoot lever actions, some good calibers there.

Both boys shoot 7/08.

I carry a Switchback XT when I hunt alone, which is rare.

My favorite caliber is 7mm Rem Mag pushing a 139 grain NP.

Used to shoot a 7mm-08. Won't hunt with one again. My personal experiences have never been good.

7mm08. 308. And last a 30-06. I prefer the 7mm08. But caliber doesn’t really matter that much.

Y'all know I have been through tons of rifles in alotta different calibers but one I settled on that just flat out gets the job done is 25-06 shooting 117gr Hornady interloks..One rifle I'll never part with and it has out performed every other caliber I've ever used on deer.

I've come to liking the 6.5 CM this year. Previously I shot 243 and 30-06. I have leaned more towards less recoil due to a torn labrum.

Heck I didn't know there was any other real deer killing caliber other than a 30-06 cool
