Nuff said, either will do.

Man this thread has a lot of opinions,with that said I own a 7 mag. love it and have all the confidence in the world in it.
But,a well known writer and outdoors man who I have a lot of respect for Jack O'Connor,swears that the best round ever made for white tailed deer is the 270.With that said I find myself afield many times with my old 742 woodmaster in 30-06.My wife bought it for me 35 years ago for 189.00 bucks.I could not tell you the deer I have killed with it.

I shoot a browning x-bolt .270 short mag and a ruger 270 win and would choose them over my 7mm every day without a doubt 7mag to me is just to much gun for a deer JMO

I have both and I always reach for the 270. It's a fine deer round (as is the 7). As mentioned, Jack O'Conner used the round for everything in North America (except for maybe the big bears) and his wife did the same with an even smaller 257 Roberts.

Die hard 7mag here. Been shooting one for 18 yrs.Either is a fine choice for deer. Ask yourself if you ever think you might go out west. Just something to think about. Oh, BTW, bought my son a 7mm-08 this year and had to use it some to "try it out". I may have found me a new favorite.

I would say .270 for an all around deer rifle(thick woods/ clear cuts)

But like elkman stated if you even think you would go out west the 7mm might not be a bad choice. Out west its not about knock down power but about distance, and thats were the 7mm has its advantage. Other than that the .270 is a fantastic deer rifle.

I have shot a 7mm mag and it is a cool round, fast and knockdown without a ton of kick, but ammo prices , plus not shooting 400+ yds shots, I absolutely love my standard .270 , it is a great balance. I shot a .270 wsm for years and it was a great round but bullets were expensive and a lot of kick, plus hard to find. I have gotten a .270 and bought about 10 boxes of shells and absolutely love the round . Perfect for tn deer hunting

Wow, is this thread STILL going? \:D

I shoot a 7mag. The only thing I DON'T like about the 7mag is the ammo price, especially compared to the 30.06, 270, and 308 prices...they are less expensive than the 7mag. I don't reload, so I just deal with the prices.
