Re: deer caliber picks

For PA in the wood the old 30-30 you can shoot through 3 spaplings and still drop your deer. for longer range in pa i would say the 270-7mm me personaly im not a 30-06 fan maybe cause it seems like everyone is.

Re: deer caliber picks

IMO best deer Cal. .280 Rem or 7mm-o8. Not the best .257 Roberts.
