Guns Like firearms themselves, there's a wide variety of opinions on what's the best gun.

Good long-range deer calibers.

The .264 Win and .257 Weby are about as flat shooting as you can get in deer rounds.With their reasonable recoil you can tolerate practicing with them enough to take advantage of all that reach as well.

I haven't looked through all of the responses, but this ballistics calculator is really a great way to compare the various calibers and ammunition.

Long range deer calibers would include..... .243 Winchester; 6mm Remington; 25-06; 257 Roberts; 257 Wea mag; .270 Winchester, WSM, & Wea. mag; 280 Remington; all the 7mm magnums; all of the 300's,
Also agree!

When someone says long range and deer I always seem to think 264 Mag or 25-06!

add in the new marlin's xl7 & xs7 same as savage's but less cost
my 270 win was $281.00 out the door. academy.com
