I LOVE the 243 for deer but when you get out near 300yds you better put it in the perfect spot. There is not much power in that round at that distance. I have a 270 and a 243 but hunt with the 243 90% of the time.

Most guys I know couldn't hit a paper plate at 300 yards regardless of the caliber. Of course they are "killers" within 100 yards.

All these calibers are good and time tested, all are worthless without practice.

IMO: .270 WSM W/ winchester balistic silvertip
Good optics is the key. If you can't see it you can't hit it.
