It is my favorite small and medium sized game caliber. The only downfall is the fact that ammo is more expensive and harder to find but ask yourself how much do you plan on shooting it? I know guys that go through 100 rounds a month and others that will never shoot that in a lifetime. One of the cheapest and deadliest over the counter rounds i've shot would be the Winchester 120gr Positive Expanding Point. It hardly ever passes through an adult whitetail but bow does it like to turn vitals into jelly.
