is the .223 enough for deer ?
Question: What would you consider the caliber of choice? I'm thinking 308 or 30-06....but, I'm considering surplus ammo (not for hunting) for my guns as I find surplus cheap and plentiful...so most of my arms are in those calibers. :lucky:lefty o said:i guarantee you i can kill the biggest whitetail walking the face of the earth with a .223, but i absolutely believe that it is an inadequate choice for making clean humane kills every single time the trigger is pulled. it may be marginally adequate for the tiny southern whitetail, but i would still choose something better.
