    I'll take my 60 caliber muzzleloader over a centerfire any day. Talk about dropping an animal fast!

    I would recommend a .300 short mag., 7mm, or a 270. However, if you shoot a smaller gun, .243 for instance, you can buy special bullets for it or reload them yourself and successfully shoot an elk.

  • Well, I use a 30.06. You need something heavy enough to take them down with one shot. I do know some who prefer the 25.06 but personally I like the heavier slug of the 30.06, or the 30.30 for short range.
