.243. Light. Easy to find ammo. Antelope are made of glass. Easyish to find ammo if you dont reload. And its not hard to get in relative close distance if you try hard enough.

243. You put it in the boiler room you don't need a big gun. The fun is sneeking up on them to get under 250 yards.

25 -06 or 308 either one. everyplace I ever been where there were antelope it gets windy. easier to shoot with wind with those two. 308 can shoot a heavier bullet and 25 06 is fast. 220 swift is fast but light bullets blow around so easy

any of them will work just fine in the hands of a capable hunter and shooter

it would definitely be between the 25-06 and the 243 90+gr bullet

after that it would come down to the rifles themselves

yes 25-06 will give you a little more power

but what kind of hunt is it , if you have to carry that rifle many miles and the 25-06 is a bull barrel beast and the 243 is med or light couture I am more likely to take the 243

if the rifles were same and had the same optic the only difference was long action vs short action .257 vs .243 then the nod would go to the 25-06 and the next thing I would be doing is figuring out if I zero at 200 what does 100 look like , I might be able to run a 225 or 250 yard zero if it isn't more than 2 inches high at 100. then how far can I stretch it , can I get 300 , 350 , 400 and what are my hold overs

what is my range with wind
time to go shooting in the wind and see what my actual effective range is given conditions learn what it shoots like in the wind.
