I saw someone mention the .22 Magnum. When I lived in the country, the folks around our way used to call that a "poacher's rifle". Only the illegal jacklighters used them on deer.
Oh, you mean the 30-30. Of course.Harrummfff , Being a " Marlin " forum , I suspect that out of that wrenchester 1894, the .30 wcf bullet will just bounce off a deer Out of a Marlin it will just flat out kill them , gut them , and drag the deer home
My how things change.Beware of a person that has/uses only one gun. Chances are, they know how to use it.
I'm down to one center-fire rifle. Marlin 30-30 all the way. All that i need - all that I want.
.243/6MM minimum here, There`s no "best" caliber for anything....Besides a good shot placement with a .243 is better than a miss or flesh wound with a 30-06..If you can`t "HIT" with your favorite rifle it ain`t worth beans
