Re: Caliber Suggestions?
I have both the 6 BR and 6 Dasher in handguns, and would feel very comfortable hunting deer with them out to 200 yards. Recoil is minimal with both chamberings. I have taken deer with my 6 TCU with 85 gr speer btsp's. These where all under a 100 yards though, and none went far.
The 6.5 CM would be an excellent choice. As Ernie stated, the 123 gr A-Max, or 130 AB's would get the job done. -Recoil would be easy on the wrist too.
