The 243 also has a distinct advantage if you add "and smaller" on the "deer" equation. A 7-08 will certainly kill "and smaller" but certainly with more recoil fatigue than a 243.
Bingo. When I was putting together a combo gun, predators and deer, I went with the .243. If it was for deer on up than a 7mm-08 would of been my choice.

Where I believe the 7mm round (.284) would shine is with the new hunter who gets excited and doesn't make the perfect shot.
Does a little bit bigger bullet going a little bit slower enough to correct for this? Nope. But then again, either does a .300 mag.
