I know a man in south Ga. that owns a store and does a LOT of gun work, load development, custom loading and shooting. He shoots more rounds per yr than most of us will in our lives! I posed the same question to him and WITHOUT hesitation he says 260 Rem.hands down.

I have most of the rounds listed above and they are all great deer rounds. But I think the best would be 7mm08; 260 , or 308. They will fit into a short action and can be made into a short light rifle. All are inherently accurate and are flat shooting with marginal recoil.

i like the 243, but you are limited to such light bullets with poor sectional density
