Hi friends,

I would like to ask you which cartridge caliber do you prefer when shooting for fun? I personally prefer to use 9x19mm. or 38SP. I also use Makarov pistol as well as Smith & Wesson revolver.

7.62x39 is the cheapest for me. 

Otherwise .44 Magnum.

.308/7.62x51 is my MBR's caliber. .40 for my sidearm.

.22 to practice with, although it has become more expensive as of the last year.

I believe the heavier the better so I mostly shoot 45ACP for fun and that is my carry caliber also. Heavy bullet (230 gr) that I handload up to 940 FPS.

Lately though I've been shooting more 9mm (wimp round) but its cheap to buy and cheap to handload so I can shoot more at the range.

That said I have the most fun shooting 45 Long Colt out of a Winchester 94 and a couple of Ruger Vaquero's. Fun, Fun, Fun!

I have been using my 45-70 gov't for the last several years hunting. I am going to try my bolt action Savage in 30/30 seeing as I have found some iron sights for the gun.

I have two weapons. An M1 garand and an M1 Carbine. So I fire 30 carbine or 30.06.
