I've read the topic statement many many times. Why is that? Will say a 243, 7mm-08, 257, etc not kill deer for adault men as well as they will if shot by a child or women? Is that why I see so many guys out there with a 300 RUM, 338WM, 30-06 and the like. Seems some guys like to think anything less than a 30-06 just won't do.
