Yes. So does my daughter and one of my closest friends.
I use a .223, my daughter 6.8 and my friend .223. This year I'll be trying something a little different - AR pistol in 6.8.
Deer and coyote primarily.
There is no magazine restriction here in WI so I'll sometimes go out with 30 round mags if I'm going to be on public land... no not for defense but just for the looks some of the more "traditional" hunters give me.
This is who we are, what we do.
