lol - I've heard that the diminutive .22lr has taken more deer than any other round! I don't know if that's true, and I certainly don't agree with using a .22, but the point is well taken...

When I was real poor and didn't have money for meat I took two deer with a 22lr at 15 yards with head shots. I am not bragging but, you got to do what you go to do.

Default Best Deer Rifle

I'm guessing you ment best deer cal, anywho, I love these questions, I am always amazed at the amount of people that use Howitzers to shoot little bitty deer, anless you are taking deer at 300 plus yards and I doubt many are, anything much bigger than a 7MM-08 is way over kill that round will take just about anything in North America with the exception of Bear, as with cleanly killing anything know matter what you are useing everything is shot placement.
I am pretty sure more deer have been taken with a 30-30 than any other cal in history, there is no doubt any of the above mentioned cal's will kill deer dead but in all reality they are all way more than you need anless you are shooting at great distances!
It is my feeling that the 7MM-08 is one of the most over looked hunting bullets ever created if more people would study there ballistics and compair different cals you can see the numbers don't lie, not to mention you can do away with all that punishing recoil, and she is a flat shooter, so thats my pick 7MM-o8 Hands down that is my go to hunting rifle round.

rickrem700 , Boy do I know what you mean there .

About 20 years ago I ran into a fella in the woods who told me he was using a 338 Winchester Magnum , in Missouri for Whitetail deer !!

Was funny as all get out because you see at only 5' 10 I towered over this guy like a Giant .

I swear I felt like I was talking to a 10 year old kid despite the full beard with gray he had .

He tells me when he fired it it would kick his shoulder back 6 inches LMAO !!!

I wished him well and asked what direction he was headed and then I promptly went the other way !!

Default Best Deer Gun???

To each his own...

My personal favorite rifle calibers are the 257 Roberts and 6mm Remington, each loaded with 100 gr Nosler Partitions.


Favorite handgun caliber for deer -- 41 mag.
