If I had to pick one it would be 7mm rem mag and 38 special.  But I don't carry while I hunt and I don't use 7 mag anymore either.  I hunt deer with 270 win and elk with 325 wsm.

I have to go with the OP on this one - .30-06 and .45. I've got the Springfield and I want a 1911 Kimber or Colt badly.
