Default .243 ENOUGH GUN?

Greetings my northern internet friends. I am an Aussie and i want to hunt red deer this year maybe. My first time for deer. Is a .243 in 100 gr. rem corelock through the heart lung area up to 250 yd good enough for a one shot kill? Or better to keep it under 150 yd. I just dunno about this issue.PLS help. Thank you.[:-]

I've used a 243 on our Wi. deer with good results. My son will be using it for his first deer this upcoming season.

haha, funny you should post this in the waterfowl forum. a buddy of mine uses a .243 for whitetail deer and does exceptionally well with it. He swears by this gun.
