    I have always considered myself to be an excellent marksman, but in my wildest dreams I would never have attempted a shot like that.

    You are an example to all of us who remain untested. I'm finally able to admit that I have referred to others, many times, as not being able to 'hit the broad side of a barn,' without ever having proved that I could do it, myself.
    It helps if you're inside the barn.

    I didn't own a .223, but I did have a .222. Since there is only 1 number difference between the two, I figure the .222 must be almost as good as the .223. So, I chose to use my .222 for this venture. . .

    Now, for the rest of the story. Some time after my adventure, I heard that the bull was in the barn, and had been cornered by a mama barn cat. . . About the time she was ready to tear him a new one, a bullet came out of nowhere and creased her skull, leaving a bald strip on the top of her head.

    You know, it's a good thing you were using that .222. The extra diameter of a .223 would have vaporized that poor cat's noggin for sure. Anything with a .224 bullet probably would have taken down the entire structure.

    Well why wouldn't the bull become timid? He wasn't horny anymore!

    Just so you don't start making comments about the bald cat.

    All this to say nothing of the carnage that would been caused by a .225 Winchester.

    And pictures..............pictures would really sell it. Miss Mary paints some purty barns.

    So I may have saved a mama barn cat's life? That is very comforting to know.
