I vote for the .30-30. Put a set of Williams Guide Receiver Firesights on it, you'll love it.

I have a 270 I bought when I was 14 yrs old as my first deer rifle and still have it. Now I shoot a 7mm rem mag, but I am waiting on a Sendero so I am going back to my 270 again. To get to my point, the nice thing with the 270 is whatever the situation, deer, elk, antelope, anything like that, it's a great gun. Very versatile. Not saying that there aren't a lot of other good calibers, I guess I am just a prisoner of the moment I guess.
