RE: What caliber for deer hunting

crump116,

Forget the 243Win. It's an excellent varmint cartridge, and will pass for some for deer hunting if shots are kept within a couple hundred yards.
There are far, far better cartridges...

RE: 257 Roberts?

I'd pass on the 257Robts., and look at the 6.5x55 Swede. The Swede makes for a much more effective deer cartridge, using 140gr. bullets in its' standard factory loadings, and there's a 156gr. load...

RE: .270 vs .30-06

270Win. or 30-06? Either one will do a good job for you. However, with bear & elk on the menu I'd lean to the 30-06. The '06 will have the advantage there due to the availability of heavier bullets...
