P.S. The .270 win and .270 WSM are long range rounds, in the hunting context, not mid-range rounds.... in my book anyway. They should be eliminated from the poll, as should .25-06, which is more of a long range round as well.

I think he meant medium bore cartridge. At least when I read it, that was the only way the poll made sense. As if most of these polls amke any sense.

I'd say the .270. It will kill just about anything a .300 Win Mag will kill. I own Model 70's in each caliber and use the .270 much more often...

I vote for the 25-06. Better varmit round and heavier bullet for deer.

.243 for varmints and (secondary) deer. Just pick your shots carefully on the deer.

Bob is great, but it's a funny length that usually gets put in the oversized long action.
