I'm torn with that question. I killed my first buck with a Winchester model'94 in 38-55. Then was given my Dads Remington 141 gamemaster pump in .35.
Killed a lot of bucks and filled some DMP's with that gun. Tried to put a scope on it at one time. Went back to the peep sight.
Now have a Remington 700 in .270. Love the gun, not sure the hopped up 130gr shells I was loaded for a present are that good for deer.
They do go down, just not like I'm used to with the .35. Both bucks I've shot with it have taken more than one shot. The ole .35 just thumps them.
Only remember one deer that took two shots from it.  So until I find the perfect load for my .270 I guess the .35 is my favorite.

i shoot a rem mod. 700 stainless syntetic in 7mm mag. killed 7 deer and a 52 1/2in. bull moose 890lbs. dressed weight. dropped 1 shot. all the clearcuts up here you need a flat shooting rifle and the 7mm fits the bill perfectly.

Remington 740 30.06 has been old faithful for me.  I also have a Ruger .45 carbine that I have yet to kill a deer with but have heard it is a great close range brush gun.

Remington Model 7600 .270 w/ Redfield 3x9 Golden 5 star, Model 742 .308 Carbine and Model 700 .35 Whelen w/ Nikon Monarch, love them all and carry them at different times...my Bowtech Patriot kills the most deer though...

Browning Micro Medallion A-bolt pre boss, in the .284 caliber. I just love the gun, lightweight, very easy to carry and just beautiful. Ammo can be a bit difficult to find at times.
