What Does Your Favorite Cartridge Say About You?

From American Hunter, an insightful psychological analysis based on what your favorite cartridge is. I hope they do a followup on pistol cartridges, but this is hilarious. Just so everyone knows, here's my favorite.
3. .30-’06 Springfield You’re the first born child, the apple of mommy’s eye. Although you never made the Dean’s list, mama hung every one of your art projects on the fridge, proud as a peacock. You did pretty well in life, and although you may not be the shining star you once were, you’re as loyal as a mutt, consistent and trustworthy. Modern bullets have given you a new lease on life, sort of like Viagra or Just For Men gel.

It's clear that these clowns are nothing but a buncha sissy-boy wannabes, since they do not even address the .50 BMG, much less MY favorite cartridge:

"Cartridge" - oh, one of those newfangled shiny brass trinkets? Needs special tools to put the powder and cap in it?
Heck, with most of those ya can't even see the ball going downrange!

30-06 has been the "standard" for me for the past 35+ years. It will put down the deer, gator, and reach out there if I need it to. I played with the .308 as a distance round but the gun/ammo combo I had never surpassed the model 700 bolt. The 5.56/223 was what I had to fire in the military. I also got the Mini-14 for personal use. It is fine for punching holes in paper but it can't hold a candle to the 30-06 for distance or putting down a live target.

.308 Win./7.62 Nato

One doesn't really have .308 as a "favorite" cartridge. One has lots of rifles chambered in the useful military cartridge, because it makes sense to have things that can shoot the useful military cartridge. The actual favorite cartridge is the poorly-named .260 Remington AKA 6.5x.308, what the .308 should have been in the first place. Or maybe even that Creedmoor thing.

.25-06 - the love child of the sissy metrosexual .270 and the masculine .30-06 WarGod cartridge, the ought-six light provides, speed, power and accuracy without giving up the charm of it's varmint shooter trajectory.

Perfect for concealed carry 1903/A3 -action customization projects, the Swinging Ought-Six-Plus combines flat shooting ballistics with the macho gunpowder reservoir of the WWII Action Movie Veteran (both the 1903-A3 and the super swinging Garand have demonstrated the reliabiliity and versatility of the Ought Six carrier vessel!)
