Outstanding and truly thoughtful responses...I especially appreciate the pointed analysis of JMR. Thanks. Bow season starts in the morn...so I'll likely revisit this thought later. It primarily came up while I was bear hunting last month and it seemed like a large number of BIG black bears are in the area (at least bigger than past seasons around here.) I typically hunt bear with my 30/30 but started carrying the .308 in the last couple weeks (after bumping a large sow and three cubs). But then the ghost of Elmer Keith started whispering ".338" in my ear... But like I said, I don't foresee Alaska or Africa so the 338 mags seemed unconvincing. I think JMR struck a chord of truth with the 30-06...
