As has been commented in numerous other threads on this subject, modern bullet technology has made it feasible to use centerfire .22s on deer.

Yes, I'd limit myself to head or neck shots, and possibly cross-body shots on smaller deer at relatively close range. I'd not take angling shots where deep penetration is a requisite, nor take running shots. That's been my style for some 35+ year with a .243; why change?
