    Looking at going to western Canada (Saskatchwa) I have a 270 308, and a 30-06. I was thinking of upping the anti a little and checking out a Remington 7600 in 35 Whelen. I know they are not in production with the whelen however I have a few pump rifles I can buy. Some say the shooting can get long and the deer can get very big. Others purport that it's shooting inside a 100. My thought was that the 35 would give solid performace out to 250 and have a big payload when it gets there. Thanks

    You already have three perfect deer cartridges that will drop deer from point blank out to 300-400 yards.

    I really don't see a point... I know people here in Montana (the deer are basically the same size as canadian deer) that use .270s for bull elk, mule deer/whitetails, and even moose with a well placed shot. Just use anything you have there. They all will do fine.

    Any of the mentioned cartridges in the OP will do fine.
    I have been up there many times and contrary to popular belief, there's not a "booner" behind every tree and they are not bullet proof either.:D
