Has any one had experience with the above subject bullet or the WW 64 grain .223 or any other bullet in this caliber for deer? It is realized the pro and cons but this caliber will be a necessity for a relative.

I’ve used the Trophy Bonded bullets on two deer and have seen the 64 gr. Winchester bullet used on two others. All worked well. The Trophies expand to a large diameter and retain almost all their weight. The expansion is so great they penetrate a little less than the others, still a very reliable bullet.

Here is the obligatory part about the 223. Make sure it’s legal where you hunt, it’s not in my current state. And the shot needs to be well placed, there is no extra power or penetration.
