    Note that these are all .30 caliber... an excellent caliber for game in the range you mention and all the way up to elk. If I had to choose one chambering in that caliber for the game you describe it would be the 30-06. You can see why it has endured the test of time... it is very flexible in range of bullets and power for a broad range of game. If you reload and use the 110g bullets at 3400 fps, it is even a great varmint rifle.

    Can't beat the 30-06 or the .308! Both are great for big game

    Yup! Its hard to beat the 30-06 for a one gun all round rifle. That's exactly why I bought mine.

    If you like a long action rifle go with the 30-06, you will not be disappointed. If you like a shorter action rifle i would say the .308 would be the best all around. IMO

    I have to agree with 99explorer. The .30-'06 is the answer to your prayers!
