Yes it is legal here for deer. I don't know what answer I was looking for with that question.
I know lots of folk do use the cartridge for deer... I guess I was wondering if the rifle would excel in any way as a hunting rifle. It's not actually why I got it.
Okay here's another question... I have AN AWFUL LOT of .223 40gr v-max/b-tips. Do we think these will be too light for the 1 x 7?
