Default 243 and deer

I was given a remington 243 in a will. I already have a nice 270, but i want to set this gun up for deer hunting also. The gun has been shot 6 times and dropped one doe on the spot. Is this gun effective on deer. I don't do head shots, i like behind the shoulder. What factory ammo has the most knock down power. How does this gun compare to the 270, and my old trusty 30-30. Shots range from 35-60 yards give or take.
