Thanks in advance,
It sounds like you need a 7-08 Rem or a 260 Rem.
I use the 7-08 Rem for everything smaller than Elk ( not that it would'nt kill Elk )
The best all round load I have found for deer is 49.5 grs of H414 behind a 120gr
Ballistic Tip @ 3050 ft/sec.
It is so accurate I use it to head shoot those turkeys that wont come to the call
or hang up at 200 plus yards.
Sierra makes a 100gr Varminter bullet that smokes varmints.
