All of my friends shoot big rifles either 30.06, .270, one even shoots a 7mag. I swear by my .243 that I got when I was 16. I have dropped deer at 200-300 yards with it. I have never had to trail a deer because of the smaller caliber. At most they run 10 yards and keel over. Also make sure you get composite. I hate my .270 because even though it looks sweet with its shiny wood finish the damn thing weighs a ton. All my Rifles are Browning. I just dont think you can buy a better gun. Well other than my winchester pigeon grade over and under 20 gauge but this is the rifle section.
Like everyone says its all about the scope. I just got a new Swarovski scope to replace my 15 year old Leupold and was able to take out a beer can at 250 yards with only 1 shot. Im actually thinking about scaling down to an even smaller caliber and using my Wilson Combat AR-15. But I have to use subsonic ammo because of the silencer.
