Does anyone else have this problem? When I bought my first centerfire rifle - a .308 - in 1981, I had no trouble deciding which rifle to use because it was the only one I had. Now, I have the same .308 (refinished), a 7mm, a .270, and a .223 (not as good for large animals), and sometimes I just don't know which to take hunting.

These days I just seem to go with the 257 but I know what you mean for sure!

perhaps some sort of shoulder bag, like a golf bag, maybe even a gun caddy. "Winston, my 7mm please..."

What's your application? For deer, everything on the list except the 223 (only good for headshots out to 150 yards - hey, you might be up for the challenge). The other calibers are going to be very similar in end ballistics - the animal shot with them won't be able to tell the difference.

Those 2 are ballistically similar... identicle, actually, within 100 yards of each other (ie: the mag will do what the '06 will a hundred yards further out!)
