    What Caliber would be the best all around pick for North American Big Game animals if you could choose only one?

    Those are cartridges, not cailbers ( you listed two .30 calibers).

    I’d go .35 Whelen since your range of critters includes big stuff.

    Out of the ones listed I chose the .30-06 simply because you can hunt everything from deer to moose with it if you pick the right load [=}=]

    I’d feel better with something bigger since big bears are included on his species list (all NA big game).

    Deer species, indeed the ’06 covers it well.

    Yes, I’d feel a little better with something a little bigger for browns and grizzlies.

    Out of the rounds you listed I would pick the dirty nought six.

    But I picked other and would take a 300 win mag.

    Not to start a riot Here…… But I owned the 7MM..I sold it as soon as I seen how the Wifes Dinky lil .257 Roberts out performed it with a lil 117gr Kore Lokt…We both killed deer a few years back in Same spot…Both Shots were within a half ” of each other on the two deer…I traqcked Mine 300 yards..Hers Dropped on the spot..I don’t care what Anyone says..I will Never own another Magnum load….I now go back to the tusty Ol .06 or My .308…. But When She’s Not Hunting,I sneak Her .257 out :-$ :-S :^O

    FWIW……. Buddy of Mine dropped a Elk in CO 15 Years ago with His .243…… Any of the Guns listed above will do the job on ANY NA Game :thumbup :thumbup

    I don’t know what you did wrong because both deer I killed with the Rem 7mm Mag I used to own dropped within feet of where they were shot lol :p
