Re: what caliber? .243 win or 250 savage?
You really can't go wrong with either, I've killed a pile of deer with an old Savage 250-3000 out to the 400 yard mark and it's my personal favorite deer rifle, knocked quite a few elk down with it also. It was rebarreled to a 250 AI and that just made it that much sweeter, shoots super good with 115 Bergers and the 120 Hornady up around 3000 fps, the 120 really has done a good job on the elk and longer range deer!!!
Like the 243 also but the 250 is just my favorite, it's just so mild and easy going till it puts the smack down on deer!!
