Anything under 65mm is to small for over 50 yards, got to be careful and see the hair follicles on the animal you're shooting at

If you get a .223, .308 or .30-06 you'll be able to get ammo anywhere.

.30-06 is kind of an American standard, but the others are just as good at 250-300 yards

Indeed, then you can work your way out to 60 maybe even 70 yards!
