Hopefully, I will soon see the effect of a proper .223 bullet on close range deer.
My 7 & 8 year old boys are going hunting for the first time this fall.
They will shoot from a blind and use a tri-pod.
Rife is a Windham SRC with Bushnell-TRS red-dot.
Shots will be restricted to 30 yards on broadside or slightly quartering deer.
Bullet is the 60 gr. Nosler Partition, chronographed @ 2,807 fps out of the 16'' barrel, my handload.
The .223 AR with recoil absorbing semi-auto action and adjustable stock was the best tool for the job.
If I have to defend my life, I'd prefer more than "better than nothing" in my hand.
