I started with a 22-250 when I was 7. Now I shoot any and every caliber, but favor the 30-30.

How about y'all?

Started with a 30-30 have used over 30 different ones since. Currently mostly shoot a 6.5 Grendel, but on occasion something else will make an appearance, mostly the 357 Mag, 7-08 or 6.5-284

.30-30, .243, 270 Win - in that order. Been using the same .270 for 35+ years. That's deer, other animals get different medicine...

I started deer hunting with a .308 and, while I may stray every now and then, it's still my go-to round.

BB, then .22lr, then 30-30

Now it depends on what I'm doing. 22-250, 6.5 Creedmoor, 7mm-08, .308, 7 Rem Mag.

Still have the 30-30 with irons, and still carry it when stalking creek bottoms.
