I sometimes deer hunt with a 460 Weatherby Magnum with 300 grain bullets at 3,900fps. That has to be considered odd. \:\)

Sorry but that velocity is a bit off. I meant to say, 2,900fps. The Varmint hunter in me was showing I guess thinking of all the hot 22 centerfires. 122gr IMR4350 behind a Barnes 300gr semi-spitzer gives 2,900fps Reduces the recoil down to about like a 3 inch 12 gauge and knocks the crud out of a deer without blowing up a ton of meat.

I like the 6.5mm caliber for deer. 260 REM, 6.5 Creedmore, or 6.5 X 55 Swede are all about perfect for deer. If you have any one of these three you don't need to buy another unless you want to.

(Sometimes I just wake up with a feeling I should carry my 270 or 243. I usually follow these feelings just for luck. )
