I think the first question should be what type of action do you want to hunt with under the conditions you will generally be hunting under. A heart shot is a heart shot.

a hole in the heart or lungs is a dead deer, caliber is nothing more than personal choice,just pick something you can shoot pleasently and accurately.if it knocks the crap out of you ,your not going to practice with it the way you should.
