Looking back. I would say: 243 Win. 308 Wen. 270 Win.

I don't think I ever had a deer run off after I shot them with a 243. More dead right there than not, with the other two.

I did a run with a 7-mm Remington Magnum, I shot a lot of everything for a few years as well. Moose to rabbits.
Most any and all will work fine for deer. Need to put the bullet in the right spot.

Can’t remember. It’s either a .243, .257, 7x57, .30-30, .358, .38-55, .45 ML, .45-70 or a .50 ML.

I have a 21” Fieldcraft in 6.5 Creedmoor that I bought new from shortactionsmoker a while back


I suspect it’ll be the favorite someday.

I have Tanner’s old 243 Ackley and a Tikka in 308 that I’m pretty fond of, as well.

Hello Jenkins9,
Welcome to the 24 Hour Campfire.


If we live long enough, we all have regrets. But the ones that nag at us the most are the ones in which we know we had a choice.

My favorite deer rifle is whichever one I happen to be using at the time. I hunt with a 243, 6.5 Grendel, 6.5 Creedmoor, 308 mostly. I bought a 30-06 and may use it some this year. Also have hunted with a 270, 7X57, 35 Rem, 44 Mag, 6.8 SPC, and 44 Mag.

If, for some reason, you put a gun to my head and told me that I had to go kill a deer today, or else, I would probably drag my Model 700 Classic 270 out of the safe, and use it with the utmost of confidence. I've killed a slew of deer with it, and the only reason I don't hunt with it now is because I just like shooting different rifles.

Nice buck and nice rifle.

I have a similar looking MRC X3 chambered in 6.5CM that is one of my go to rifles. At the time that I bought it I wanted the same rifle in 280AI but I was a day late so bought the 6.5 CM. That MRC a Marlin 336 that I shot my first buck with and a CZ 527 chambered in 6.5 Grendel get hunted with the most but I like working other rifles into the rotation.

I’ve never owned a rifle chambered in 270 but have always thought that a wood stocked Kimber 270 Win would be a just about perfect western deer rifle.
