    Dear @Hermitage,

    I regret to inform you that your deer cartridge of choice is not better than mine. However in this day and age of mis/disinformation it is easy to understand how you reached such a conclusion. For your convenience in transitioning to the best deer cartridge I recommend reviewing the seven stages of grief:

    1. Shock, and denial
    2. Pain, and guilt
    3. Anger, and bargaining
    4. Depression, reflection, and loneliness
    5. The upward turn
    6. Reconstruction, and working through
    7. Acceptance, and hope

    If you require assistance in this difficult time I am here to help (If you believe you have received this message in error and we do indeed shoot the same cartridge please disregard this message).

    Regards,
    Magnetite

    I believe we have all been decieved..the title SHOULD have read "my dear cartridge" so it could still be taken one of too ways.
    my dear cartridge as it one you hold in high reguard,it is dear to your heart,you have feelings of joy when it is mentioned...like the mighty .270 win

    OR my dear cartridge as it it hurts your wallet to even think about buying more rounds for it $6-7-8 per round...like the 6.5 creampuff

    As an aside, Douglas Adams' 42 as the answer to the ultimate question - what is the meaning of life? The sum of the dots on a dice is 21. The meaning of life is... 2 die!

    You need to remember folks, Hermitage is a school teacher.
    Often teachers are asked to teach about stuff they have no idea about. Usually their students have no idea about the subject either, so both sides fall for it.
    In this instance, poor old (young actually) Hermitage forgot who he is trying to fool.

    This is quite the opposite to my belief. Without getting all philosophical I believe the meaning of life is to survive. No matter what happens to most people they try get out of the situation alive. I still understand that we all eventually die somehow too.

    Hah... it's one of those arguments I can't lose....as long as my cartridge and rifle remain anonymous.

    But I'm happy you all saw the humour in it.

    PS. @RUMPY I think your 'meaning to life is to survive' is also called the 'will to live'.

    PPS. My favorite deer cartridge is still better than yours

    Unless you are running one of those rainbow calibers
    (which will instantly void your statement), there's a chance I'll have the caliber you are quoting. So on that count we are equal.
    It will then come down to numbers taken with it.
    Willing back yourself against some of the oldies on here?
