I have killed a few deer with scoped revolvers.
I own one specialty pistol, it is a stainless/synthetic Encore in .243. It wears a Bushnell Elite 2-6.
It really likes 90gr accubonds.
Unfortunately, it also repels deer. I have carried it many times and deer disappear! Carried it 2 days...
I've got a wanting for a .338 of some type.
I owned a Weatherby Vanguard SUB-MOA in .338 win mag and it was a great rifle. Killed some deer with it. Was very accurate.
Got bored with it and sent it down the road.

Not many pheasants around here to chase anymore but I am going up north for a few days of chasing grouse and woodcock with my dad. I have a new 16ga to try out so I can miss with purple shells for a change

Wife just shakes her head and is thankful we have a privacy fence
just the opposite for me...
I have had to wear a walking boot on my right foot for 8 weeks while a tendon heals. Haven't been able to do anything so this year I am itching to get out hunting! Haven't been able to shoot sporting clays, clear shooting lanes, etc...
Pretty much whats already been said.
Bought a Wby Accuguard a couple years ago in .257. It absolutely loves the 100gr TTSX Wby factory load. Shoots little tiny groups and no recoil.
Absolutely plants deer.
FYI- Quite the flash when shooting a raccoon at 3am
So I finally had a few days off to pick up my new rifle and head up north for some bluegills and rifle test.
This is a new caliber for me so I had to buy some ammo on line. Ended up with a few boxes of Federal Hammer Down 300gr.
The rifle came with a Nikon Monarch 2-8 which is about...
