    Federal premium makes .223 loads with 60gr Nosler Partition and I think they have a load with either the 53 or 60 gr Barnes TSX. I would use one of those.

    a .223 will take a deer down. From what I am told from the older gents in my area is that they are a good round, but a bad shot can result in losing the deer. Most common with the group I hunt with is 300 mag versions such as ultra, belted, and WSM. I use my lever action 30-30 for brush hunting and longer range with scope i head out with a 30-06.

    You can find all rifles in a decent price range, but the rounds get expensive. I hardly spend more than $20 a box for 30-30 and no more than $45 for 30-06. Weatherby has some excellent prices on their rifles, but I am not completely sure how they are. I am considering getting a .308 from weatherby
