.300 Blackout, .45 ACP, .50 Beowulf, .50 BMG, and 7.62X39.
After buying and putting together several of these in 5.56, and being around the platform for 30 years, carrying the M16 A2 in the military, I really wanted a pistol caliber but could not get my self to go that way and ended up just buying a Beretta CX4 carbine in 9mm
I really think my next battle rifle will be a true piston gun like a Sig 556 or a Beretta ARX 100
I guess I'm just old school, but to me a .22 is a .22. For shooting anything larger than 50 pounds, I want a bullet that will get the job done right the first time.
well i figure if the military uses it to kill terrorists, i use it to kill 200 lb deer, the i figure itll stop some crack head coming through my window
I have 6 or 7 great AR's myself!
i unfortunately only one. im addicted I NEED MORE
I have two stripped lowers and uppers over there in a drawer that are yet to be put together. That will be two more I will have, whenever I decide what they will be, and get put together!
Sure it will, if you shoot it enough times. My dad hunted with the .222 Remington (50 grain bullet at 3140 fps.) exactly 2 times. He got rid of it. All .22 caliber bullets/rifles are for hunting varmints, not deer, or any other game larger than varmints.
Yup....Will the 223 kill, sure will. To its credit in encourages good marksmanship, ya gotta put email were it counts. Will it put them down like a 308, of course not. There are a lot of excellent choices in between that make far better medium game rounds than the 223, if one wants light recoil. 257 Roberts, 243 win, 30/30, 300 Blackout........
Kinda surprised that the 223 is acceptable in so many states for deer. The Ol rule of thumb AIR was 24 caliber up and a minimum of 1000 FPE @ 100 yards.
And remember that the military wants to wound enemy solders, not necessarily kill them. A wounded man exhausts recourses in man power, and money.
i have killed plenty of deer with my 2 .223s and have never had to shoot more than once nor have i had to track but one. it only ran 50 yards to a thicket. 22-250s and .223s are incredibly effective hunting rifles. i have killed more deer with .223 than any other caliber. i have used all sorts. 30-30, 308, .243, .270, 300 win mag, 303, and none kill as fast as the .223 and save all the meat. i cant speak for yall but my family hunts for meat not trophy. i swear by a well placed shot with my .223.
And thousands upon thousands of deer have been killed with the lowly .22LR too.
They sure gave. A well placed shot with even a solid bullet will do the trick
During the depression I would wager that most deer taken fell to the 22LR out of season......but that's another topic.
