Re: whats the perfect deer rifle
here we go again,,,and nothing shoots consistantly thru brush it is just a old wives tail. pick what you like that is why they make different makes and models. I was amazed in Wyoming about 15 years ago how many locals still use a 30-30 for elk, even met a woman who claimed to use a 243 for elk. my cousin who is from Pa but now lives in montana has 2 rifles, a 700 in 7mm weatherby mag and a remington 600 in 6mm.
It may be a poor choice of words but I am smart enough to understand what you meant.
