    It's a tie between the .416 Weatherby and the .500 JRH.

    The definitive top three are the .338, 300 and 30-06.

    Are you even allowed to buy and own those down in Jersey-land?

    If my parents weren't elderly I would be out of here. You almost need a permit to cut your grass. There is more people working for the state then in the private sector. If you are lucky to be in a union the total approx. cost to hire a union worker is about 90 per hr. half goes to the worker and half to the union to fund the far left.
    It costs about 10,000 just to get the permits to build a 2-3 bedroom house. I could go on but it makes me ill.

    Ya have to carry a goldurned hand-cannon everywhere you go up here, for protection-- I personally pack a .577 Tyrannosaur Trinitrotoluene Super Magnum Express +P. It shoots groups of less than MOA, like little four-leaf clovers, really, at (insert completely overestimated yardage figure) charged with 740 grains of Varget Aluminum Oxide Dry Solid Missile fuel behind a 1000 grain, armor-piercing-incendiary-high-explosive-Teflon-coated-Ballistic Tip Partititon Trophy-Bonded Gold semi-wadcutting, Woodleigh Weldcore Cor-Bon BearBuster solid-wall, flat-based, long-ogived, boat-tailed half-spitzer. It's really bad-azz at an MV of 4238 FPS chrony'd--and will shoot through an engine block and kicks a lot, but I have to have it ...

    Well, yeah, as long as you're comfortable shooting something that inadequate, but can do so proficiently, then why carry a Mans gun?

    Why does it matter?

    In terms of rounds fired, I'm guessing .223

    I think he meant for big game hunting Dave, not chasing squirrels around your property.
