You won't find it. The smallest twig will deflect a bullet off its mark.

Pick and choose your shots and make sure you have a clear shot. Any rifle or shotgun that you have currently would suffice.

Lever action Marlin 30-30. Nothing will bust thru thick brush. The 30-30's rounded tip will be deflected less by small twigs.It is lite ,quick and easy to handle.I have peek sites to look thru for close quick shots.Almost every deer I've shot with mine dropped in thier tracks. The few that have run ,didn't run far !!!

The two main things to concern with are bullet shape and lots of energy. It's all physics. In calculating vectored energy it's all about the angle of impact and the energy transfer to the item impacted. The more energy you have and the less the angle of impact you have the less will be the deflection from the original path. Read as "big bullet going fast".

NRA did a test on this a couple of years ago. EVERY caliber they tested ( from 22 lr up to 458 win mag including shotgun slugs) will deflect enough to cause a complete miss or worse yet ,a bad hit on a target just 1 ft. behind the obstacle. shooting through brush at a deer without picking a hole is unethical and stupid IMO.

45-70 is a good choice.
