I've killed deer with a .257 Wby....It's not necessarily about size, more than it is about shot placement.
If you're shooting a .300 Wby for max 250 yards, you might wanna consider a different caliber. That's alot of horsepower for a 250 yard max... Just my opinion.
A .308 Win would be perfect, if you want to stick with .30 cal... Also, the Berger 168 VLD's, Nosler 165 Accubonds, Hornady 178 A-Max, those should all be formidable opponents to deer.
However, keep in mind about keeping the .300 Wby for long-range hunting, and getting a smaller caliber for closer shots. I feel confident with my little .257 Wby on deer out to 750 yards shooting the Berger 115 VLD's.
Also, like I said, my groups are more consistant and tighter with my slower reloads than the hotrod factory Wby ammo.
