338 will hit the hardest, 308 would have better accuracy potential. Both would be accurate enough and hard hitting enough for deer to 300 yards.

Which one is the sexiest to you? Go with that one!
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

Re: best caliber

you should post this in the "specialty handguns" section. there are several on there that know quite a bit about shooting a pistol with a 15" barrel. deer can be killed a whole bunch farther than 300 with a pistol.
