i personally love the .223, but I don't think that it is strong enough to take down a deer. I want to hear the thoughts of other hunters.

One of the larges deer I've ever taken was taken with a .223 at 200 yards. 62 Gn. Balistic tip. You may be supprised how lethal these are.

Although I personally would not hunt deer with a .223, I know a lady that kills deer each and every year with one. And I mean some BIG deer too. But, she is patient, waits for the perfect shot, and uses the right bullets. I have nothing against it if you are willing to do as she does. But, that applys to any caliber, doesn't it?
