Around here, the array of 7mm's is very popular!

I have a  Rem. model 7 in 7mm-08, TC ProHunter in a 280, Rem model 700BDL (circa '62) in 7mm Mag!

With a proper hit, it doesn't take much to drop a WhiteTail!

    My Norwegian daughter (former exchange student) and her dad use 6.5 mm rifles (approximately .260 caliber) to hunt reindeer, their deer which are similar to our elk and moose and find it very effective. I do not know what bullet weights they are using.

    I have always said I preferred 30-06 and .270 because of the diversity of bullet loads available for different kinds of game.

   Not strictly related to hunter safety as long as the shooter knows his target and background but does bleed over into the ethical hunting issues.

For several years I carried my .280 to Wyoming and Colorado as my hunting rifle.  Not thinking one year I shot "too" many times at the shooting range thinking that I could buy more cartridges at the store.  That is when I found out never to carry an "odd ball" caliber.  I killed a bull Elk on opening day that year but I have always carried a 30-06 as my primary shooter since then.  When we both hunted Marty and I both carried 30-06's so that our cartridges were interchangeable.

Good idea Lynn!

I've reloaded since 1974 and over the time, I've accumulated 35 sets of dies, smallest caliber is the 17 Remington and the largest is the 45-70 Government!
