Actually I don't own anything on your list.The .270 is probably Number 1,but I've shot more than a few BC Mulies and whitetails with the .280Rem and the .280AI. Monashee

Just to show on your list. A few years back, the 303 Brit for sure, and also the 300 Savage and 30-30. Most prolific for the past century would have to be the 30-30 lever gun.

This is probably the correct assumption, personally I use a .280, though this year I will bring along my .257 Roberts as I have it shooting 100gr TTSX pretty well.

Not mentioned in your list and not necessarily a "preferred" cartridge are shotguns with slugs (both 12 & 20 ga.)and 50 cal. muzzleloaders for those of us forced to hunt in the built up areas of southern Ontario.

When hunting in WMU's allowing rifles it might be whatever I pull out of the safe for a given hunt.

Numbers 1,2, and 3 are great elk, moose, and bear rifles, but most guys around here use a .25-06, .270, .243, or 7mm-08 for deer wink

243, 25/06, 270, 303, 308, are just some I own and hunt.
Cut my teeth on a 303 British.

Why is the 303 British so popular with Canadians?

No one that I know of produces factory rifles in that chambering.
