    I've used a 1976 Remington 700 BDL chambered in .270 Win. that was my father's as long as I could hunt. I've never taken a deer with any other rifle.

    I bought a Mossberg 810AH,(.30-06), new in 1975. Must'a got a good one, it still does 1" 3 shot groups. Was going to be my every big game rifle. Never had it out of the state...

    The one I've used the longest is my Browning A-Bolt, now threaded and muzzle device equipped for one of my cans. Most elegant? Pre-64 M70 in .264. Favorite to use? Probably my 6.8 AR, though I'm working on a .308 AR that once I get an adjustable gas block and can mount on it I think it's going to be really really fun. PA isn't the only state to hunt in, ya know.

    Ruger 77/357 along with my ruger Blackhawk 357. The longest shot I've had to take on a deer recently has been well with 100 yards. The majority have been on the outer edge of bow range. And a 158 gr flat point bullet(NOT a hollow point) does a fantastic job of killing at that distance.

    Mine has always been something in the 30/06 have several Rem. 760's, a Browning A Bolt 2 and a Browning BLR in the 06 but as of lately it's a Browning X Bolt in 6.5 Creedmoor and for deer it's a hammer, I haven't used it for bear yet maybe this year I'm still working on heavier bullet loads.
