? what is your Deer Rifle?

We all have our choices here, I love mt .35 MARLIN..and I also love my .3006s
But I used my 7MM Magnum once on a 400 yard shot and thank the good lord I was aiming
for a lung shot. it nearly gutted it..it looked like a soft ball went out the other side.
please add your choice of calibres and any opinions.

    I also have a 7mm rem mag which is my main choice for open fields or longer shots can occur. I also have a 243. win where shots are within 300 yards and a 30-30 win for heavy bush and closer shots within 150 yards.

    M70 Winchester in 264 Win. Mag. with 140gr's is my favorite.
    M700 Remington in 3006 with 168gr is my "go to"
    M77 Lightweight in 257 Roberts is my "long hike" gun.
