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.

Has anyone ever wondered why the U.S. Army has always stuck with the .30 caliber bullets? It may be of interest to some to research this.....As for me if it is good enough for our army to defend this country with its good enough for me to deer hunt with. .30 cal all the way for me 308 30-06 and 300wm.

#1: Military performance and hunting performance are two different things.

#2: "...stuck with the .30 cal"? Seems to me the .223 got a fair amount of military use. I personally wouldn;t use that round on deer, with so many other better ones available.

any gun you can shoot well. i change yearly the two guns i used the most this year was a tikkaT3 in 30-06 and a browning Abolt in 270wsm. i swear by both those guns but imo a regular 270win is probobly perfect for 99% of the hunting any of us will do.
