    Alot of animals been killed with a 22 caliber its all just a matter of bullet placment a bet ya that their been more animals killed with the 22 than any any other caliber around if the tuth let be known.So their is no really good answer to you qustion since both are really good calibers.

      Clay Cooper,

      False statement. A 7mm Rem Mag with 175 bullet out performs a 30/06 with 180 and 190 gr bullet. 175 gr .284 cal have better sectional density and ballistic coefficient that the .308 180 gr. its a fact

        Clay,

        The BC and SD are better and the 7 has higher velocity

          LDR, your buddy reminds me of Whiskey Chamberlain (Nosler reloading manual #3) the 243 is up to the task of elk, not sure that I would intentionally go after moose with a 243. However, there will always be variables and exceptions that are unseen untill the shot happens. I often tell people I'd hate to be charged by a grizzly with a 30-30 in my hand. It's just not my first choice for such an animal. The animal isn't going to wait for you to run home and grab your preference. People must be proficient with EVERY weaopon they own. It has been said "if your bullet gets to the heart of the brain, caliber in irrelevant. Be safe, enjoy every moment afield.
