When I lived in NW Alberta, I probably favoured my .338 Win Mag, along with 30-06 and a .35 Whelen. A number of years ago I bought a 7mm-08 after my cousin raving about his and started using it occasionally. Well, the more I used it, the more I was impressed by it's capabilities. Now that I'm back in Ontario, I probably reach for the 7mm-08 more than anything else. I currently have a Savage Sierra and a Mannlicher styled carbine from Remington's Custom Shop in 7mm-08. What's your favourite general purpose calibre?
