Deer, I'm leaning towards a flatter shootin gun. The 7mm-08 is a great round. I have shot it and it is very impressive. Just not really what we want for her.
If you want easy to find ammo and a flat shooting deer rifle you can't go wrong with the 25-06. I used to use 100 gr Remington core-lokt, inexpensive-leathal combo for deer for years. I have put 3 elk on the ground with that bullet too.
