The one that you are most comfortable using as either will get the job done. The 243 will be a little better for longer shots with the heavier bullets.

Depends on the terrain you're hunting. If you're hunting open fields and have clear long-range shots, then I'd say the .243. If you're hunting in an area with short shots and lots of brush I'd go with the 20ga.

I would definately go with the 243. A shotgun with slugs/buckshot is considered a short range affair. A 243 can be used as either a short range or long range deer getter. I personally have killed 15 or more deer with a 243 and several with a smoothbore and slugs and buckshot. Every one killed with the shotgun required a followup shot only one with the 243. Many people have a vision of a big heavy slow bullet plowing through brush and hitting the target. That just does not happen. When a bullet contacts brush, it deflects no matter the size and weight of that projectile. If your shotgun is a slug gun with rifling it can be made to shoot much more accurate than a smoothbore

I'd go with the 7.62x54.... It's a heavy bullet, and has some range as well.
