RE: Short to Mid range deer caliber recomendation needed

If you don't care whether you have a long or short action, the .25-06 is a good choice. If you want to be as light as possible, the .260 or the 7mm-08 would be my top picks.

Good choice! If you can handle 12 gauge slugs, you can handle rifle recoil! I would put 12 gauge slug recoil aroung the .300 mag level, if not greater.
