Interested in the different calibers used for deer hunting beside the
usual, 30-30, 30/06, 308, 270, 243, etc?

Also, the ones who shoot lever actions, some good calibers there.

Both boys shoot 7/08.

I carry a Switchback XT when I hunt alone, which is rare.

My favorite caliber is 7mm Rem Mag pushing a 139 grain NP.

7mm08. 308. And last a 30-06. I prefer the 7mm08. But caliber doesnít really matter that much.

Y'all know I have been through tons of rifles in alotta different calibers but one I settled on that just flat out gets the job done is 25-06 shooting 117gr Hornady interloks..One rifle I'll never part with and it has out performed every other caliber I've ever used on deer.

I've come to liking the 6.5 CM this year. Previously I shot 243 and 30-06. I have leaned more towards less recoil due to a torn labrum.

.270 the majority of the time, but this year I have a new stand with close shots so I use a .30-30.

7mm-08, .270, .25-06, .260, 6.5 Creed, .308, .257wby

Favorite deer caliber and what I think is the perfect deer caliber for the Southeast 7mm-08. 2nd favorite is the .257WBY simply because its a laser and hits like lightning
