    Whatever you can hit and kill them with (taking legislation into account). Take your pick, use it, learn about it, don't change it for at least 5 years unless you wear it out. You'll hear more people on here say 'I should have never sold that gun' than you could shake a stick at. Shooting a gun well comes mainly from your own self confidence (providing the gun is working as it should) and familiarity with that gun will make it more deadly than what the calibre is.

And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”........Dalai Lama

    Would you not recommend a 6.5x55 otherwise?
