Check out the B&C stats, it may suprise you.Depends on where you are- Eastern Whitetail is much smaller than Western deer. Here, 7.63x39, 30-30, .243 all work well (as well as .44 Mag carbines.
Western US? 30-06, .270, 25-06, .308, 8mm etc. They will all do their job if you do yours. .300 Win Mag, 7mm Mag are used- IMHO, not really needed unless you are hunting bear size of a small truck.
Bud, You want to sell the .270, remember??? Just too loud!
The 760/7600 is very popular in the North east. .30-06, .270 it is all good.I'm going to say a lot also depends on your hunting style . I do a lot of still hunting in the adirondacks and will not go out without my Remington 7600 in 30 06. . My old man stand hunts a lot and uses his .270 and a .243 before that. All have worked well for our own particular needs and styles. Just depends on who what when where why and how
