    What caliber of rifle is the best all around for all big game?

    Probably going to be a toss up between .308 and 30-06.

          If limited to one rifle and cartridge I would have to choose the 30/06. Ammo is available universally and there are tons of differnt factory loads. With the right bullet you can take down most anything with proper bullet placement.

            I own a .308 and it does a great job for deer. The 30/06 is great for elk.

              The 30/06 is tried and true.

                    .308 because it can shoot deer and elk no problem
