Down here in Texas, the deer can be pretty big. Hogs are massive here tooSorry, no experience with either. How big are the deer in your area? IMO, even a well-loaded 223 is okay for hog, but may or may not be ideal (or even legal) for deer, depending on where you are.
I’ve thought about the creedmore, but I’d end up with a full AR built for it, instead of just an upper.Creedmoor has been established for awhile.
PRC is newer but again an accurate round according to accounts
Again no experience with either here. Later when things hopefully calm down I'll be building a 6.5 Creedmoor upper for my AR-10.Not gonna do it now however.
