If my readings over many years are any indication, the 30-30 has taken more whitetails than any other calibre. When you factor in the other game animals hunted I think the 30-06 and the 270 rank real high. Everyone has their favorite but when it comes to the variety of bullet weights for different uses I think the 30-06 is at the top. @--0--0137
