    The evolution of firearms and cartridges was not finalized in 1906. Any of the above are adequate for the majority of big game you are likely to encounter. Pick one of them and a Lott and call it good for anything larger than an antelope. I am convinced that God allowed so many calibers and variations thereof just to appease us gun nuts. A person more sensable than a gun nut would simply acquire a .22 LR, an '06, and maybe a .223 or .458 and be happy from now on.

    The '06 is the most versataile of these three. It has more upside than the .308, and i'm not sure If the WSM's will be around in a hundred years, like the '06

    I agree with beekeeper the 30-06 is a great all around caliber and is easy to find ammo for. It also has less recoil than the .300 and will take down virtually anything the .300 will take down. i use an 06 for elk and it works great.

    I like the 300 win mag. There'e nothing wrong with the other 2 that's just my preference.

    All have their advantages, I own at least one rifle in each chambering. If I were to have to choose only one it would be the 30/06. Ammo is available all over the world. Tremendous number of offerings in commercial ammo and components for reloading are readily available. With the right bullet the '06 can take almost anything that walks.
