What would be better for deer hunting? Knock down, bullet price, shooting range etc.

Didn't even read all the hundred page of opinions just chose to throw mine out there. I've owned a 270 wsm , 7mag, and a 270 plus other calibers. I learned through my older years of hunting it doesn't matter if you shoot the biggest magnum in the world, if you can't hit with it, it won't matter. IMO a 270, 30-06, 308 is all a person needs for rifle power. All of those are all around calibers for most game.

The 7mm Mag is one of the least efficient cartridges out there. You need to have a longer barrel for all of the powder to burn. That in turn makes you have a heavier rifle. The recoil is also greater than the 270. You really don't have a significant advantage going with a 7mm mag over a 270. A .284 diameter bullet vs a .277 bullet. That's only .007 difference. 7mm Mag factory ammo are also more expensive than 270 ammo too. But in the end, get what you want.

Although my current deer rifle is a .300 win mag, I own both a .270 and 7mm - 7mm gets the nod.
