    .30'06 is right.

    It would have to be a 7mm Rem. mag or a 300 Win Mag.

    I gotta stick with my .338 insofar as what I consider versatility for big game.

    30-06 and 300 Win Mag both. But when you talk about African game and bears, I'd want something bigger like the 416 Remington.

    Just to be different, 45-70.

    Killed a lot of bison in the west. Killed quite a few deer in the north woods. Can, and has killed the whole Big 5 in Africa.

    30-06 is a great all around cartridge and easy to find shells and somewhat cheap to shoot.

    30/06 is probably the most versatile and most practical rifel cartridge ever produced. You can find ammo all over the world and it has more bullet selections than one can shake a stick at.

    I would have to say the .30-06 is the most versatile gun. You can hunt any thing from varmits to big game

    I like the 270 calibers (inc the new 270 WSM) and the 35 cals. 270's for high energy retention at distance and 35's (358 Win, 348 Win, and 35 Whelan) are up to any beast for close encouters in NA hunting. Handloading can make almost any round very versatile. If the question is what round can I always find ammo for in most any town, 30'06 and 270 would be my guess. I own one of each and have taken a wide variety of game with both, but a combo rifle barrel set in 7MM-08 and 358 Win would be very versatile

    .30-06, but the .300 Rem. ULtra Mag with the 3 different power levels is great also.

    Hard to mention anything but the .30-06 when talking versataility.

    When you say big game I also think of grizzly's and moose in Alaska and some may even think of African game too. So, that being said, 375 H&H.

    Wild boar hybrids can have piglets at three months of age.
    I've taken a few.
