I agree - just a bunch of macho hogwash. I know many people who take whitetail with 243 rifles ever year. I think as others have noted the important thing is shot placement and bullet construction. If you hit the right with a good bullet of practically any power and caliber, they're going down. I think the sentiment you're hearing is partially a result of the absurd power inflation we've seen in the past 50 years, and derived from the myth that a bad shot with a more powerful round will be worlds more effective. If you shoot a rifle as well as you shoot a handgun, you wouldn't have to worry even if you were using a 22mag.
