Heck I'll vote for the Winchester. I have one but I can't hunt deer with it here in Illinois. That 30-30 and a Remington 870 have probably killed more deer than all other fire arms combined.

It was me, I voted for the Enfield. The ballistics are similar to my favorite - 7.62 NATO(.308)

Not knowing anything about your terrain, I have to take the 303. I sporterized a MIV once and had a pretty good rifle. Everything else you listed is pretty short range.

I voted for the beloved .303, it's the Canadian tradition, and best of all, it's MADE IN THE USA!!!!!
