In a lever it would be a Marlin 336 in 30-30.
In a bolt gun go with the 7mm-08. It is one of the most effective/efficient and over looked calibers out there!!!
It has the ability to shoot as far as the 270 and hit harder but comes in a much smaller package (short action) and you can go to heavier bullets for heavier game if necessary not to mention the recoil in slightly more than the wimpy 243!
