Re: .243 or 7mm-08??
I'll take the 243 all day long for deer, it's perty much the go to chambering around here for first time deer and elk hunters, I cut two elk and a deer from a young lady last year and she proved very handy with her little 243.
High Fence, Low Fence, Stuck in the Fence, if I can Tag it and Eat it, it's Hunting!
