I take half dozen guys out every year and get to see antelope shot with just about anything legal. If you can shoot really any legal CF caliber with appropriate bullets is a good choice. I use a .300 Win mag because it shoots best in the wind....where antelope live the wind always blows.
Antelope are not very durable and it don't take much to kill 'em.

Pick a caliber and then use the heaviest bullet your barrel will stabilize to buck wind. All my antelope have been shot with a 300WM, definitely overkill, but it bucks the wind and I already had it with me for elk.
