Im not here to start trouble im collecting information from various web forums on this subject. As i have found several examples of deer being shot with a .20 cal and only one stating bullet choice.... so far.
I thought seeing as this web forum being called "DEER HUNTERS CLUB" i should be able to get unbiased information on the subject. I asume that deer hunters on this forum use .22 cal to kill deer. If they have used lighter weight bullets with success them it would safe to say the .20 cal could aslo be used.
i think i know where the confusion came from. when you assume.............it is the deer HUNTERS club not the deer KILLERS club. can you kill a deer with a 22 or 20 or 17? yes it can be done but not by anyone i would choose to associate with. I've read about the 22.250 being used in texas for deer but i still think its wrong. 95% of deer hunters would probably say never use a 22 cal, or smaller (happy?), for deer hunting.
you asked a question that boggles the mind of most hunters and were given their answers. it is their answer so of course its bias, its theirs.
