Above I said .270 or .25-06. Just want to point out that of these two, for reasons that others mentioned, the .270 win is just about the perfect all-around choice for very long range on deer & smaller game, and so probably edges out .25-06 and others, in large part because factory ammo is so cheap, plentiful, and in varied loadings. 150-160 gr spitzers have good BCs for long range. Splits the difference between .25-06 and .30-06, which are also good choices. Still, in truth, the .243 or 6mm rem will do the job at reasonable hunting ranges, and kick less. .257 robts for that matter too. Bottom line, since your "short list" is good, you can't go wrong.
