    Don't bring me into your stupid argument...................If I want in I will take the 10.75X68 out this weekend and get myself some rabbits............( Actually I think I might do that)

    Alec.

    ( By the way, the term is 'Smart Alec'.........)

    Hmmmmmm by your argument I guess I shouldn't have shot the last Deer with a 204...........I mean, its smaller than a .22.

    Seriously. My penis is small. It is so small that I can justify owning any big bore or safari grade cartridge I want.

    Wait....I thought you got one with the Gibbs....yes?

    You mean the .404 Jeffery?

    No, I let BigBoreShooter borrow my rifle. He shot the deer with my gun.

    I do still need to shoot one with that .404 Jeffery. Maybe next year.

    If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck it's usually a duck. Notice the trend? I only see one post of a guy boasting of shooting a whitetail with an elephant gun and wants an explanation as to why I believe it's too much gun. And I still can't be to far of on the age.

    As far as elephant guns go, lots were shot with a 7x57. But wait, that's not an elephant gun.

    Hmmm, this is unfortunate.

    Please, while you are defining what cartridges I am allowed to hunt deer with, would you please set the parameters in which I may post as well. Might as well make my whole box to live in since we are here.

    Well....according to your profile, you're 39. That's a young whippersnapper in these parts to a lot of us. You might want to rethink the age thing.

    Just saying.

    So, would #6 shot in a shotgun at 6 feet be too little gun?

    Well, my next rifle to be blooded will be the Pre 64 Mod 70 in 375 H&H Magnum........on a fallow deer spiker.

    Wanna guess my age???

    I am actually glad. If not, I would be stuck hunting elk with a .22lr and it would make make Mrs. Jerm uncomfortable during "relations". It must be quite a burden hauling around a giant wanker. It seems rather limiting.

    All funning aside, I'm sorry that my cartridge selection offends some.

    Oh BS :jester: You HAD to know someone was going to get all butt hurt about blasting Bambi with an elephant gun....ain't the first time it happened :tooth:

    Now...on to you Varget....you have yet to answer the question about using .72 caliber rifles with 500 grain bullets (12 gauge shotguns with rifled barrels using slugs)...it happens all over the country, every season....are all those folks "over gunned" too?

    He's being serious. I've seen it. No Not on purpose, it was an accident. He turned around before zipping. But I digress.
    It's tiny. Like so small I couldn't make fun of it small. I felt bad for him.

    IIRC, you'd already shot it with a .270, but the beast closed the distance by ten yards. You went to your backup gun. I recall it well now. It was a near thing.

    Oh, I'll ask again.......do you deny that I put that 500gr bullet out of the .458 WM through that deer's lungs?

    Yes. We intentionally pissed it off with the .270 Win. Makes for a more sporting endeavor.

    Oh....to answer your original question.............

    .30-30 Win
    .32 Win Spl
    .308 Win
    .270 Win

    I really want to get one with my 6mm Rem (only antegoats with it so far) simply to get off this Win suffix kick.

    Wow Zee. Even after all this time, your 404 deer still manages to rile folks. It's the gift that keeps on giving.

    In truth, I honestly thought we had moved beyond that on this forum. You know, telling guys how far they can shoot game and what cartridges they can use. Things like that. I felt we had worked past all that crap.

    Guess not.

    Wait this was a 458 deer? That's right because I'm remembering the Jeffrey deer.

    Ok. Now you're a scum bag.
