    Grizzlies soak up bullets and a rip spinal cords- 338 is a good greeting card for hungry beast pressing their noses through your tent- since I hunt in bear hunting territory a 243 Win will do anything I ask it.

    .300 weatherby mag can kill anything in the US, is even capable of brown and grizzly bear, though i feel it is just a tad on the light side for those 2. recoil is not bad, lots of different bullet weights. can shoot pretty far with that gun as well.

    so thats my ultimate north american big game gun, luckily i have one!!

    7mm Rem mag, 338 or 300 Winchester if you can handle the power. If not 30-06

    That 8mm Remington Magnum would also be a good one.

    Considering you have to cover the big boys if we're looking for an all around cartridge, I would lean towards the .338 Winchester. It will take anything on this continent cleanly, and isn't so fast that it would blow up deer and antelope.

    30/06 unless your in BIG BEAR country, then .375 H&H just in case.

    I'd say 30-06 or 270 the cartridges are similar in stopping power and both are available almost anywhere.

    30-06 would be hard to beat. I am also very fond of my .300 weatherby magnum.

    To my way of thinking, "all-around" equates to versatility for game in a wide range of sizes. Regular factory ammo for the .30-06 is available in bullet weights ranging from 125 grains to 220 grains.
    Remington offers a "Managed Recoil" loading in 125 grains for short-range big-game shooting applications, and they also offer a 55-grain "Accelerator" loading for varmints.
