You could use a 30.06 or 7mm to hunt deer at 500yds.Answer
No serious hunter would shoot at an animal that far away.
If you can "Reliably" hit the vitals on a game animal at 500yds ensure that shot placement and caliber are sufficent to execute a clean kill. If not then pass on the shot. A magnum will do it but ammo cost are rising and with that enharent flinch that many get from massive recoil it may not serve you well. Bullet weight and style play an important role in trajectory out to 500 yds epecially when wind is a factor so try to find a balance between sectional density and ballistic co-efficients. Check the wind drift charts from ammo manufacturers for info on this to get a visuallization . If you can hit a target at 500 can you do the same when the rifle is set for point blank range ( lets say 250 yds ), from a semi kneeling position ( where you stopped at when you saw him ), with ammo that you've tested in both hot and cold climates ( at least 200 rounds worth ), with a slight 5 degree declination in the land ( on a hill- changes range ), a 15 mph crosswind at 125 yds and a 20 mph gust at 300 yds etc.. etc.. with the sun slightly in your eyes and your heart pounding ? If you can then yes a 30-06 will do nicely. I can hit the target at 982 yds ( my longest recorded shot on paper targets ) but I like to sneak into about 50 yds with my 44 mag pistol and a SxS 20 guage because my great grandpa told me it was called " HUNTING " and not " SHOOTING ". Hope this helped some
There is a web site; www.bestofthewest.com They regularly shoot at game between 500 and 1,000 yards. However, they are using a custom built rifle and scope that together will cost you about $7,000. Too rich for my blood. Make your hunt a 'hunt'. Get in there closer and make it a challenge.
Yes, it is legal. Texas does not permit the use of RIMFIRE guns for deer hunting, but any centerfire is legal. Wh ile it is legal, I personally do not recommend it. Yes, the .223 can kill a deer. It will also wound a lot of deer. It is simply too small to insure a clean kill.
The 7.65mm Mauser rifle is MORE than adequate for deer hunting- IF a soft point hunting cartridge is used. Full metal jacket military ammo should not be used for hunting.
With my .308 model 770 I can take a deer out to about 400 yards. An expert can shoot a lot farther then that but 400 is the longest shot I will take at game. and I prefer 100 yds or less.
If i have a rifle in my hands they are...
Varmits to deer.

You should have usable accuracy for deer-sized game out to about 100 yards, but we would suggest sighting your rifle in as closely as you can, and then giving it an extra inch of elevation.Hint: most bore-sighting tools will allow you to make rough settings out to longer ranges.
IT NEVER SHOULD HAVE STARTED! Deers rock! go deers!
No. An airsoft rifle is not a legal weapon to use when hunting deer in South Dakota. It is also illegal to hunt on private land without permission plus it is illegal to shoot a firearm within 150 yards of a residence, building, campsite, or recreation area.
any where theres a river and some deer have fun!
no we cannot hunt a deer in our field
usually the range of a 12 gauge slug rifle is within 100 yards. However, there's new sabotted ammo such as Hornady SST that may allow you to reach 150-200 yards. At ranges longer than 150 yards the killing power drops. Most deer hunting scenarios are within 60 yards in the woods. I shot two deer in Maryland during the muzzleloder season within 30 yards. I hope this answers your question.
Nothing more powerful than a 30.06, but stronger than a .22
It is possible, but to be legal, your bow should be 35 pounds.
Deer taken by gun rifle/slug and by bow.
It all depends on what your biggest deer rifle is. I think the BIGGEST (i think) is a .454 The biggest RIFLE is a nitro express .700 (BIGGER THAN A 50 CAL.) It is used for elephant hunting though
