the better question is best caliber for enviroment because there are dozens of very good calibers to kill deer, but certain calibers would work better in hardwoods and thick stuff as opposed to hunting wide open flat land, my personal preference is 25.06, its a very fast consistent bullet if hand loaded with the 117 grain boat tail and inflicts a quick clean kill.
