Like Bruce I also agree .223 is not a good whitetail round
I am not even a fan of the .243 for deer but I would not go less then the .243 as hunters/sportsman I feel we owe it to others & the animal to make an ethical & as quick kill as possible.
have read articles that state the .223 round is adequate for deer but my $.02 I woudn't use it
