You've ever taken a deer with?
Vamintmist's post in Zee's thread got me to thinking
For me, it's a 223/5.56.
This little spike
was adequately impressed by the performance of of this Nosler 64gr Bonded bullet from ~150 yards away
it was a severe quartering towards me angle and I got ~ 30" of penetration.
I used it because of the argument of the 223 being too small for deer. Figured trying it myself would give me factual data on its effectiveness.
Will I use it again? Undecided, but I know it WILL work if I decide to use it again.
So, what's the smallest/lightest cartridge you've taken a deer with?
