Depends on how I'm hunting

"Sneaking and peeking", in tight cover, .243 in a Win M70 Short Action Carbine. Equipped with a 1.75-6X Leupold VX-III. A short, light weight rifle I can carry all day.

Sitting in an elevated box blind over a corn filled feeder, 7X57 Mauser in a modern, strong action bolt gun, equipped with a Leupold 2.5-8X VX-3. Has a heavy laminated stock, almost no recoil.

For open terrain where long shots are possible, a Win Classic M70 in .270 WSM. When you really want to be able to reach out and touch something. Equipped with a Pentax Lightseeker 3-11X AO scope.
Artillery lends dignity to what would otherwise be but a vulgar brawl.
