get the 270 and a 3-9x40 scope. set scope at 3x when hunting in thick areas. don't try to shoot through bushes, limbs, thickets at deer. this ain't a difficult decision. good hunting.

.277 cal (270 win) is a great deer cartridge. as it .308 (308, 30-06). actually, suitable calibers are too numerous to list. i'd say get a 270 win.

there is a reason why the 30-06 is the cartridge by which all others are measured. i've killed moose with a 270 win, but i prefer the 30-06.
