Like I said, I have been using the .243 for at least 10 years as my main deer rifle using 100gr Remington Core Lokt. Every deer I shot at with it went in the freezer. My brother in law killed two this past season with his .223 shot in the vitals with Hornady 55gr Vmax and I know a few people who are known to use a .22 WMR for head shots which is very effective but the question was which cartridge would you recommend as a first deer rifle. I still say the 7mm-08 is likely the best all round "deer cartridge".
