Default What's Your Favorite Caliber?

In another thread, Ol' John just re-stated the obvious - "Since the 6.5 is my favorite caliber", and I thought I'd 'stir the pot' a little and post a poll on favorite caliber. Now let's keep our terminology clear here, I'm referring to CALIBER, NOT CARTRIDGE. You'll note in the choices, that there are no listings for a cartridge. That's because this is about CALIBER.

Let's not get ourselves wound up too tight about this. Personally, I find it more and more difficult to 'like' one caliber over another, but this is just good clean fun, so go ahead and take the risk. Pick ONE.

Mine's the 8mm. Although, I'm getting reall 'fond' of the .375...

You'll also note that there are some missing calibers - .172, .243, .277, .312, .330, .348, .366 and all of those above .375. The THL poll manager allows only 10 choices so this is what we've got to work with. Apologies to the muzzle loading crowd, for no specific class for ML calibers, but most of them would be in the .375 and larger class.
