    Hands down 30-30. Better effective range. Doesn't kill shoulder. Can be downloaded for varmints. Most versatile, works well with cast or jacketed, and most broadly used, best market support.

    I chose 454 Casull, cause I already got it. Wish they made one in 460 S&W. My brother likes the 308 Savage cause he found one engraved & grape vine pattern carved, a beaut!!
    for a 35 Rem I prefer my Rem 8-81s & contender. Gotta go Daughter is calling for supper helppp
    Had a 45-70 Marlin, traded it off after 2 eyebrow scars, 3 broken glasses, & for a Browning.

    IN the last great ammo shortage I went to wal-mart. For the first time in my life I saw you could not get 30-30,22,38 spec. The only thing they had was 12 gauge. Realizing of course, this is not a valid representation of current times It does make one wonder. For those of us here on this forum we are only limited by availability of source materials,primers,lead, time etc. I guess I would have to say 30-30. (which I here was available even during ww2)

    The above is why I have lots of brass (thanks Starline) and about 1,200 lbs of ingots and 10,000 bullets ready to go and 120,000 primers and 300 pounds of powder...

    Hmmm...I think I need some more lead!

    My choice is the one I love, the 30-30.
