    .270 for most game, and .22 for small game, and plinking

    my favorite round to fire is 12 gauge, but i'll save that for shotgun world

    I tend to lean toward the .270 win, but am looking at the .270 wsm, its a real hot rod.

    30-06, mostly due to the availability and versatility of the ammo.

    .308. It is much better than a 30-06 at longer ranges :D

    You might want to have another look at your ballistics chart. At 300 yards the '06 has the .308 whipped in velocity and energy, so does the .270. 8)

    I vote the .308 for all around shooting.

    Thanks for the link. You would never catch me arguing about the accuracy of the .308, but as far as downrange velocity and energy are concerned the '06 edges it out. Dont get me wrong, I'm no '06 fan, I'd go with the .308 over it anyday. 8)
