Ruger No.1 in a .375 H&H & open sights. Attractive to the eye, reliable, accurate & enough stinging power for a broad list of creatures.
@Nick435Ok then let me narrow it down a bit. Hunting for “medium game” so let’s say from American whitetail/impala sized animals all the way up to a eland/moose sized animal
@ActionBobThis question seems to pop up every so often in various iterations. For the criteria given, I would be tempted to go with a 300 win mag. And a 7x57 would be perfectly fine also... But honestly a 30-06 might be the best choice. And if I was going to have only one, I'd be very tempted to make that in a Rigby Highland Stalker.
Hi Bob: I gotta jump on the .35 Whelen band wagon - I know the caliber will stretch across my afield needs & perform + I’m a retired military man & who doesn’t luv a good backstory on the development: Col Townsend Whelen.
