    If you could only have one big game caliber for all of N. America what would it be and why?

    Ruger Super Blackhawk

    Rattle'em up: Sir; Ruger Super Blackhawk. .44 with 250grn Keith type
    Sir; with long gun I have reached out and touched. Not much incentive for me to learn something new.
    Crawling sneaking hiding to with yards; what fun:)

    For me; it isn't about the kill; it is all about my challenges

    I go to the grocery store for food.:09:

    .30-06 will do anything you need it to do.

    I actually deer hunted in California with a coworker that used a .44 Ruger Blackhawk. He jumped out of his vehicle with his .44 straped to his waist, and I ask him if he forgot his rifle? he told me that the Ruger straped to his side was all he needed. I never said another word about it.

    Based on your other post the .270 you picked is probably as good as it gets for all around. Good choice.

    .300 Winchester Magnum...Hands down, Flat shooting, Many bullet choices on the Market, Plenty of power to kill a Buffalo, Grizzly or Big Moose or anything else !!!
    It's what I use as My primary Hunting Rifle...
    Lighter recoil than the larger Magnums...
    Its what's for SHOOTIN' !
