I've always thought that a std sporter in '06, and 180 gr slugs was a heck of a kicker, and the lighter 165 and 150 especially did not kick as much.

I came up in a family/era where all believed that the .30/ 180 gr roundnose in '06, .308, .300 Savage, etc, was a better deer killer and brush buster. I have since learned that this is not true, and I found that my rifles all shoot 150's better group wise, and do not kick as much, and kill deer just as dead.

The heavy .30 slugs (180 and up) have a place, but are not needed for deer.
