Ok, did some comparing, and here are some energy comparisons all at 100 yards..

12ga Sabot slug 385 grain 2400ft/lbs
30-30 170 grain 1900ft/lbs
30-06 168 grain 2600ft/lbs
.375 h&h ultra mag 300 grain 4178ft/lbs

Again, just my opinion, but I think that if you are using anything other than the .375 (not recomended for deer sized animals) the delivered energy would be the most in a slug, as the nose is flat, and going to deliver more energy, as opposed to an easier, less resistant pass through with a rifle cartridge. Again...just my opinion, but I would like to see actual data on energy delivery formulas, as now i am just curious.

Not exactly what you are looking for, but this is a good read, if not lengthy and detailed.

What is the most deadly out of the following:
Rifle bullet-basic 150 grain bullet
Slug gun- with a regular sabot or slug
Bow and arrow- with good arrows shot at a normal speed
Muzzleloader- with maybe a 230 grain bullet
Crossbow-the reg
Shotgun-00 3 1/2 buck shot
You should add RiverBottomBowHunter to that list. If you did that then I would choose RiverBottomBowHunter.

All are deadly with the same correct shot placement. Some just kill in different ways. Any of those through both lungs means death in less than a minute.
