That caliber would make a young man a top notch rifle. 6.5 Creed; 260 Rem caliber....6 X ?? Mauser ( there are so darned many 6 X's around anymore) all are top calibers.
If ya stay away from jumbo's like elk...even hand loaded .243's will do you a top job. Pop a 105 gr boattail in a 243 and send it on down the pike and watch the mule deer and the "speed goats" fall before you...
