For 200-500 yds a 30-06 is fine.
I have a Rem 700 SPS in 30-06 and use it as my primary deer rifle. I shoot it at all ranges out to 1000 yards. I shoot Nosler 168gr Ballistic Tips as my main bullet for 500 yds and in and 175gr BTHP bullets for farther shots.
I have a Vortex Diamondback 3-9x40 and use the BDC dots with the Ballistic Tips and dial turrets for the long range bullet.
