Sorry for another question. I am new (3 years) to hunting and like my last question.. I have a 45-70 that I have used for hog and am now looking to get a rifle for Deer and an Elk hunt once in a while.... but mainly Deer. I went to a hunting store here locally today and the man suggested that I get a 270. He said a 300, 308 or a 30-06 would work but for Oklahoma might be too much. Said that you can easily hunt Deer and Elk with a 270 and would be a good choice. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks again.
