Best rifle for deer?

The Blaser R-93: This rifle is awesome! You can actually purchase up to 20+ different caliber barrels for the Blaser rifle. Mine is presently carrying the 6.5x55 Swede caliber which is an awesome deer caliber. Also have barrels in
.270 and .25-06 You can just sell all of your other rifles and only have one best) rifle with many caliber choices. That is exactly what I did and never looked back since then. Am so very happy with this system for deer, elk, etc. hunting.

....and bring all of them in the field. Make your selection on site. Big bucks require larger calibers and does less..etc.

I'm going through the same deal. I decided on a Sako 85. I like accuracy and quality items. The Sako fit the bill and has excellent craftsmanship. I have also found them to have that "gotta have it factor". It's like picking out a wife, only you can get another if you want to. LOL.
