You are right there lafromla 1, but I would have to ask 1 question. Which makes a bigger wound opening the .22 or the broadhead??? I have never shot a deer with a .22 before(and I don't aim too.) I have shot a possum with a .22 cal. and the wound opening was no bigger than a nickle. I shot one a while back using some Carbon Express broadheads and the hole was about 1 and a half in wide. I think the broadheads would do more damage.
