my family regularly hunted deer with 22lrs when we lived in montana where there is no ammo restriction on big game. my brother steals my AR15(223/5.56) every year for deer season. I started hunting with my fathers 243 and with a federal 100gr powershok I completely blew the heart in half on my first deer at 300 yards. you show me a deer that survive with half a heart and I'll show you a zombie deer. there is no such thing as a round that is not capable of taking a deers life, plain and simple.
