      I've got rifles in all three calibers.

      And it's a tough choice. Let's see.....Do I prefer Blondes, Brunettes, or Redheads?

      I guess it depends on the day, the lighting, the packaging, and the mood I happen to be in. Not to mention the wind speed and direction, relative humidity, bullet weight, and muzzle velocity.

      I luv 'em all, and am not married to any of them. But I'll take any of them to the range, any time!

      That's rhetorical, people. The real wife is dishwater blonde going grey, as am I, with what hair I have left. But you see where I'm headed there, I suspect.

            I have to say I picked the 8mm only cause it punches the biggest hole. I like all of them though..... do have to admit as of late I've shot more 8mm than anything else cause it is the most cost effective. 30.06 is getting tougher to find.

              8mm the Great Grand Daddy of centerfire rifle cartridges. Punches a big fat hole, and can be loaded to outperform an 30-06

                    338 Lapua Magnum, most definitely!
                    48° 8' 24" N 11° 34' 30" E
