    I like both as well. For big open country a flat shooting magnum is the ticket. For under 100yards thick country, or up close encounters of the teeth and claw kind, I like a big solid flat nose chunk of lead between me and a mauling. Also being a fellow Idahoan, Elmer Keith gets my vote if it came down to it. After him they broke the mold.

    Roy was busy selling rifles, and Elmer was busy selling Elmer. I enjoy both, but with a pinch of salt.

    I Shoot my 06, which is on the heavier side for whitetail, but not overkill. My backup deer rifle is a .32win spc. which ballistically is similar to the ol .30/30. I am leaning toward buying a lighter, faster rifle like a .25/06 or .260

    I sit on the fence and shoot heavy slow arrows at whatever is in season.

    For me it's velocity, I don't get to hunt anything bigger than deer so I don't need a gun that will stop a tank. I hope that one of these years I will get to go after game that is bigger, so for now I will stick with a fast, flat shooter.

    I like the Weatherby theory for thin skin light game and apply Elmer and actually Taylor for the bigger game with teeth and claws. Do I disrespect the smaller game with not killing them with a sledge hammer? No I don't think so but I dread the thought of trailing up a Brown that is shot with anything less than 33.

    I have several of each and use whatever I feel like or think would work best. Roy was a salesman extraordinaire. Elmer used small fast bullets although he prefered big slower ones, read his books or look at the photos. For that matter so did Jack and so does Dave.

    I don't know about this question. If I'm taking a shot at 400+ yards give me the Weatherby. If I'm stalking through the brush, give me a lever. Not only does the hyper-velocity come with a high price, but it comes with more weight and a longer barel. I guess that puts me on the fence????

    I think most of the newer stuff is overkill. The 30-30 killed deer for decades and it is neither fast nor big. But it kills deer just fine. I think the new "fast and big" stuff kicks too much which leads to not enough practice and poor shooting in the field. An old 32 Win special through the lungs will always kill a deer faster than the latest 300 super dooper pooper magnun that shoots a deer in the guts because the guy behind the scope was too afraid of the recoil.

    Honestly, I like them all and everything in between. I've had Lazzeroni's and .454 Casulls, and .35 Remingtons and .45 Colts. I even had a Browning B78 rifle in .454 Cas.
