    .22 rimfire has and does kill lots of deer for sure, but not used by "hunters".

    .223 aint on the list, and I'd venture to say many use it.
    I use my 30-06 now but used a .270 for years.

    I am assuming by caliber you mean bullet size? Does the .270 option include the good ol .270 winchester? I would say the most popular caliber would be the .270 winchester or the 30-06.....

    I would agree, the .270 win or 30.06 has got to be the most popular. I think Dave Petzal once called them the tweedle dee and tweedle dum of deer calibers. Tried and true, which is why I shoot a 25.06. LOL.
