    I think we may be a bit harsh tarring all teacher with the same brush. Most are OK.
    Overkill is still dead.

    The 7.62x54 Russian is a good deer calibre. Not quite as impressive as the mortar a few posts back, but still... I stumbled upon the world of 'obrez' pistols - a hiatus in sanity brought about by a shortage of pistols and a surplus of Mosin-Nagant rifles. https://www.range365.com/gun-history...-bolt-actions/

    Anyway, why the Russian - what about the old 303? Well some nutter already went there... A classic for deer, especially when they are 3 feet in front of you, and you don't want to wake the neighbourhood.

    Th front of the projectile must be very close to sticking past the end of the barrel when that that thing is loaded! The police dog squad brought out a dog for training a month or two back, they dumped a bag of cash, a bag of drugs, and a sawn off double barrel shottie on the farm for the dog to find. I thought that sawn off shotgun had the shortest barrel I'd ever seen, but your monstrosity might win the contest.

    I'm liking this thread and response to Hermitage claim.

    This could easily spiral out of control easily. I would back many calibres that have taken so much game. My first Deer was taken with a .223 opportunistically.
    I have a favourite, and a pet hate.

    I do know unequivocally the only most incorrect answer is the 6.5Creedmoor, formally referred to Cream Puff ��

    How long will Hermitage keep us hanging until he reveals his ultimate NZ Deer rifle chambering.

    if you google most powerful shotguns...you get a yankee bulldust top 10...one of them is a sawn off SxS WHERE THE ENDS OF SHELL ARE PROTRUDING so the chamber isnt even a full 3" long so no barrel as such.... it was used in a movie set and apparently when tested spread shot 2 feet wide at 1 foot range...I call bullshit on that one and there would be virtually zero velocity as the shot payload would only have to travel inch at best before the blast could escape past/around it.
    75/15/10 black powder matters
