Blanket statements about "military" cartridges like the .223, .30-06, and 308 being suitable or "devastating" on various animals, etc. aren't correct unless game-appropriate expanding bullets are shot in them at near-maximum velocities.

We've seen military or hard-cast pointed bullets zip through flesh and just make holes and don't severely blow-out lungs and destroy organs like expanding bullets.

I have some Winchester Deer Season rounds in both .243 and .270 and read glowing reports on game, but haven't gotten any critters with mine yet. With deer season over, it's unlikely that I'll shoot anything with them until next spring...fall.
