Default Your favorite caliber, rifle....LOAD for whitetail

Anyone who has hunted whitetail deer for several years has their favorite rifle and load. The history of deer hunts in the past and the utter reliabilty that a hunter associates with HIS rifle is very special.

I have not hunted deer as much as I would have liked to, but I have an uncle who never misses a season and takes his limit nearly every year.

He has a Remington .308 Win with a short, 18" barrel that has taken more deer that I can count. Year after year, this little bolt action beauty never misses nor does my uncle. 150 grn Hornady's with 46 some grains of 4064IMR and 2600 fps and he was in heaven.

I recently purchased a .260 Remington barrel for my Thompson/Encore rifle and with a 24" barrel and 120 grn bullet, I hope to enjoy years and years of success.

So , tell me about your pet load and pet rifle. Any situations with a rifle or a load that you have been totally dissapointed with?

Happy 4th of July to everyone. We are truly blessed!
