Favorite deer caliber and gun

My favorite is a .308 cal. Rem mdl 700 sps tactical. Best deer rifle and most accurate gun Ive ever owned. If deer could talk they would tremble when this gun is mentioned.

    I know it is out of fashion, but I love my Remington 721 .06 for a go to gun for deer and even most of the situations for elk.

    H&R Ultra Slug 20 gauge for when I'm in the woods.

    Semi-custom 7WSM I had built for sitting on edge of fields and planning on hunting past 150 yards.

    I'm looking at a Brux barrel for one of my rifles. Which contour do you have on your 7WSM?

    I have a Mod 670 Win that I converted to .308 w/ an 18" barrel. It is a nice little rifle to carry around and has the potential to be deadly to 580yds.

    .308 seems to be just about perfect for deer. Easy to shoot, accurate and has plenty of power for 600 yard shots. Mine too is a 700 SPS but with the 24" barrel. It's been a great gun. Love the Remingtons they are like erector sets for big kids and with the price of the SPS you can get in to a rifle for a lot less money and then upgrade it as you get the funds.

    If I remember correctly, it's a #7 @ 26" plus break. Its heavy, finished with scope @ 15 lbs according to my bathroom scale.
