    My favorite chamber is my 25-06. For coyotes i load a 85 gr Nosler BT and for deer i load a 115 gr Nosler BT. That caliber always seems to shoot well for me. No recoil, fun, GREAT case life, and cheap.

    My handgun would be a Springfield Armory Champion 45 ACP. Loaded with a 230 Horn XTP with 5.7 of Unique behind it. Now thats what i call fun. I show off with that gun.

    .308, .22-250, and .270 would be 3 of my favorites, but if I had to pick just one it would probably be the .270.

    My absolute favorite for rifle and handgun would be the .22 LR, it is very accurate and very affordable to shoot. Yes, I do love wildcats and doing load development but I cannot say that I love the .22 PPC more than the .30 BR, they both have their place. But I own and shoot more .22 LR's than any other cartridge.

    Hi; WELCOME TO THE FORUM.

    First, a shotgun shoots patterns [:)], a rifle or pistol shoots groups [:D]. We all hope they are good groups [:p]

    I like all calibers but seem partial to 6MMBR, 30-06, .338 Win Mag. .22LR, .357 mag and .45ACP.

    Hello my vote is the 45ACP if not for this cartridge I would not have made 32 trips to Camp Perry for the national pistol matches would not have met some of the best shooters and finest people in the world or spent over 1/2 a year of my life in a WW II prisoner of war HUT nor Placed in 10 Presidents 100's or been Captain of 3 Civilian winning ball teams "PRAISE THE HARD-BALL GUN" and the 45ACP

    Both my responses have a Backstory, so I hope you will bear with me:

    Rifle, it would have to be 32 Winchester Special - here's why: When I asked him for his Daughter's Hand in Marriage, my (soon to be) Father-in-Law, said, with a twinkle in his eye "Wait here". He went back in the house, and after a time, came out with a double armload of weapons! He handed them each over to me with a little tale of how he got it, and his and its history together. Among the weapons, there was this hard-used Winchester Lever action, Octagonal Barrelled rifle, a model 94, in 32 Win SPL...it had, he explained, been his father's and his favorite gun. On the stock, it had impressions of case mouths - so many it looked like fishscales partly covering one side, and nearly completely on the other! I asked what that was, and he said: The marks on this side were done by my Dad, for every Deer, Wolf, Coyote or Bear he took, and these on this side were for the ones I took. It has a stained butt, and the buttplate is rusted I noted. He said that was from a flood, back in Missouri - that is how high it got in his Father's house, a Long, Long Time ago. It is a sweet shooting gun, and I will be honored and sad to pass it on, when a boy comes and asks for my Daughter's hand... I take it out and shoot it at least twice a year, clean it, oil it, and put it away. It has the best history of any Rifle I own. I have had it for over 25 years now, and my time with it is growing short. The Daughter is in the USAF, and is 21, and "To Everything, There is a Season"...

    The story for the pistol is fun, too: While I was growing up, we lived in the city, on the East Coast, and My Father chose to prevent me from learning about guns in any way. Even though he had been an avid huntsman in his youth, coming from the Appalachians in the Great Depression, and moving into the West to be a powder monkey for Anaconda Mines in Wyoming/Colorado, he didn't feel safe having a gun in amongst all the people of the city, and he was working long hours - he didn't think we should have one around.

    But upon the occasion of my Graduation from the United States Merchant Marine Academy/Commission into the U.S. Navy, he gave me a very special gift: He presented me with an Officer's sidearm: (He had been enlisted in the USAF) - A Colt Combat Commander Hardslide, Engraved. He had had it worked over by a famous (among Navy SEALS) Gunsmith/Inventor/Armorer, Art Langeth. Art worked the trigger sear so that it "breaks like glass", gave it a "ramp job" and jewelled the outside of the chamber to be pretty. The .45 was presented in a hand-tooled leather case, made by my Mother and by my two Brothers, with the Colt Logo on one side and the Symbol of my Engineering Class and Graduating Year on the other, laced by my brothers, and padded with Lamb's wool inside. Best gift from my entire Family, EVER, and I shoot it a few times a year, and remember. I don't know if I want to be buried with it, or give it to my Daughter...

    41 mag. Use FA revolvers in that caliber for hunting. Very very accurate.

    However, cannot compete with Handloaders story. Wonderful stories.

    LIVING HERE IN THE EAST AND HUNTING WHITETAIL DEER ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY, I WOULD LIKE TO EMPHASIZE THAT THE 257 WEATHERBY CARTRIDGE IS AN AWESOME CALIBER. ONE SHOT KILLS ARE THE NORM. IF I LIVED IN THE WESTERN STATES AND HAD THE OPPORTUNITY FOR LARGER MULE DEER AND ELK, THE CARTRIDGE WOULD BE THE SAME. HAVING A NICELY TUNED-UP 257 WEATHERBY IS PLENTY OF CARTRIDGE.

    Hey BK,

    I've owned model 70's, model 77's, model 116's, Thompson Center Encore's, Mark X Mausers, and 700's. I've just had the best luck with 700s. So I guess I love them because they perform.

    They are not the prettiest nor do they have all the features I like (my eyes love model 77's the best) but they shoot.
