Don't know where you live, but the .223 is illegal in some states, OK in others. In LA you can take deer with anything .22 cal. centerfire, or larger. My dad dicided to try his luck with the .22 Hornet, he managed to kill two deer with no problems, then on the third try he found out why the smaller cal. .22 rounds don't perform well on deer! Personally, I would stick to varmet hunting with this caliber. Just because it will kill a deer sized animal, if shot placement is spot on, doesn't mean you gotta try it.
Y'all be safe now, ya hear!
