.350 Remington Magnum in a sub-7lb, 19", carbine.

Best close range Grizz stopper ever made.

Following the replies on this thread has been interesting and one thing I got out of it is that AK really is different from the lower 48 as far as game and firearms considerations.

So I started a new thread narrowing the topic to the lower 48, which is more what I had in mind with the original OP:

Why magnums for the LOWER 48, when even in AK Fish & Game say 30-06 enough?

It does and it doesn't.

Of course everyone is free to do as they see fit, I just view them as more knowledgeable regarding game and firearms than me.

My thinking is along the lines of somebody that for budget reasons or whatever, can only have one rifle. And they want the most versatile rig possible, a jack of all trades, for hunting, target shooting, competition, etc... and they are trying to gather information and advice.

The biggest, largest and most dangerous game is in AK. And AK Fish & Game say that even there, you do not need a magnum rifle.

So does a magnum rifle make sense for somebody in the lower 48? I am not talking about a gun enthusiast, or a well heeled hunter that goes on safaris. For the average Joe who can only afford to own 1 rifle, 1 pistol and 1 shotgun, and wants to be able to hunt deer, elk, a once in a lifetime moose, and participate in some sports or competition shooting.... does the magnum make sense?

Since there is a new thread to continue the discussion on the topic, I will close this one. No need to have overlapping discussions on essentially the same topic.
