Default Another caliber poll

I'm getting a Bambi gun but I'm stuck on which caliber to get. I'm not a rifle kinda guy so I'm not too familiar with very many. Which of the three would you vote for?

For a dedicated deer rig the .308 in a nice light bolt action like a Tikka T3 Lite or a Remington Model 7 is hard to beat. BUt for deer I actually prefer the 7mm-08.

You did not list the most popular deer cartridge in the US, the 30-30.

I'd love to get a .30-30 but its range is kinda limited.

Personally i would go 30-06 out of those choices. Its got the widest cartridge choices and can be found anywhere if you dont reload.

308 win. Short action; ammo available everywhere, has held more marksman records for longer periods than any.Can kill as dead as any of the above 3

Another vote for the .06. Although any one of the 3 would do good for deer.

As others have said all three are good choices for deer hunting,I also really like the 7mm-08 as mentioned earlier.
I voted 7mm rem mag that's what I shoot the most,I hunt some very big crop fields where I hunt and the flatter 7mm rem mag and "extra umph" at the end of those long shoots really anchor those big Missouri bucks just works good for my hunting application.There's also a price for the "extra umph" which is more recoil and higher cost of ammo.

I would look at the 308 or 7mm-08 these two have more than enough "umph" for deer hunting with less recoil than your other two choices jmo

I see a lot of votes for .308. I bet those Somalis would vote for it as well, they don't win against the M240

Are there certain brands or models I should avoid getting if I want to use surplus 7.62x51mm?
