Just for fun...which bullet caliber/round do U think has taken more deer in this country throughout the past 100 yrs than any other? I will say the 22lr. Notice I didn’t say “legally” taken. It has certainly taken the most game by far imo.

Deer?

Doubt it.

.30-30

Or perhaps .30-06.

I think so, if not I bet it's in the top two.

Buncha deer hunters I knew liked the .270 for that task, but that's a tiny sample size.
I'd say .30-06 is probably the winner.

The 30-30 may have been the top round years ago but the 30-06, and the others mentioned are more popular now.

I’ll throw in the 308. That’s a nice popular round.


Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

The .30-30 has been taking deer since 1895, and still is preferred today to other longer range rounds, in short range wooded areas like Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. It is still very popular.

Has to be 12 gauge. The sheere volume of animals harvested during the legal seasons surely far outweighs all other times.

.308 and 30-06 are my two top picks. 30-30 would have, as another indicated, probably have been the top choice a few moons ago.

The .30-30 had a big head start on everyone else with cheap and plentiful rifles and is still a top 3 or 4 pick in the woods today.

Hunters I know all use either 12ga slugs or .45-70.

I'd also suspect that 30-06 or 30-30 hold the top spots due to the cartridge age and the cartridge capabilities in that size game.

22lr has been around since 1850. Many a deer have fallen from a well placed head shot especially during the turn of the century and throughout the great depression. I will admit that other calibers have made up a lot of ground since then and since regulations being enforced.

I would tend to agree with you over the last 100 years.

I guess over the last 25 years its the 30-06, Back in the day I never even heard of 30-06..just 30-30
