If I had to choose one rifle to do it all; It would be my lever action. Fast handling in tight places, plenty of power(.45/70), and a very reliable action under extreme weather conditions.

I realy enjoyed the posts ment to be humorous!!!!!1 But if your in the Lower 48 30/06 will handle just about every thing. If your after Grizzlies , Polar bear or the Big 5 in Africa there is as Robert Ruark was fond of saying there is no thing as "Too Much Gun"

DEPENDS ON WHAT, WHERE YOU ARE HUNTING. BUT WITH THE RANGE OF THE BULLETS TODAY IT IS WHAT EVER YOU ARE COMFORTABLE USING. THERE IS NOT A PERFECT GUN THAT EVERYONE WIL AGREE ON.

If I where to choose a rifle for an unknown hunt. It would be my marlin 336w with a 3x9x40 nikon on weaver see thur sites. It cycle quick, and I have the ablity to shoot from a foot to 150 yards by just raising my gun.

Probably the most common and most versatile is a 30-06 with a 3-9x40. Great gun for many species.

I always go for my Browning M-2 50 cal. mounted on the top of my M-1 Abrams Tank. It has plenty of knockdown power and range! It also reloads really fast for follow up shots! Come on guys, dont ask such silly questions unless you want silly answers. The topic is about as broad as one can be!

I took the question to ask what rifle "I" use for hunting...besides just about any rifle could be used for big game with caliber restrictions. A bolt for shoot further then a lever, as a general rule; but ALL rifles have limitations!
