[I'll disagree with the .243. While yes, it is a suitable deer caliber it can also be a deer wounder in the hands of an inexperienced hunter.]

So can anything else.
I have killed deer with a .243, .270, .300 Wby, and 7MM Rem Mag.
The .243 has as high percentage of in the track kills as the other cartridges. I have killed 2 antelope with it at slightly over 500 yards without any difficulty.

Of the OP I would go with the .243.
