    .40 S&W. Most of my experience comes from cadets that can’t shoot it in their duty weapon. Get a 9mm, if that doesn’t solve the problem, you need a rifle or shotgun.

    common meaning average hunter/shooter joe knows of it atleast. saying you don't think 219 zipper or 440 cor-bon is useful don't help much because not much people are using it anyway. just thought it would be fun to let people vent their pet peeve calibers

    22 magnum. Because they cost as much as 9mm. And can't be reloaded.

    The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it's still on my list.

    .40 s&w, I actually like the round it just annoys the bojesus out of me when sorting brass. Always bedding with 9mm.

    Also, any of the classic stand by 30 cals, and only to aggravate the 30 cal clingers.

    6.5 Creedmoor!

    If I have to listen to another guy at work tell me about how their 5,000 dollar "Super" rifle shoots excellent groups at our local 100 yard range, I'm gonna scream.

    I know that it is a great round. I know that it works great at well past 1000 yards. But none of these guys are shooting long range with these safe queens.

    .270 Win and .303 British. Both great cartridges, no use for them for me.

    I never heard of a useless caliber, You can always use them up as a bad example.

    Did I ever mention that I hate to trim brass?

    Gotta agree with 40SW and 10mm. I don't see where they add anything to the table.

    If I have a firearm that shoots it, it's my favorite.

    I hate all other calibers........until I buy a firearm in that caliber.

    I don't know if I have a least favorite. There are a lot of them that I don't have any particular use for, but since I don't use them, I can't rate any of them as "least favorite".
