Use .223 rounds that will expand, or they will pass right through, and you will accomplish a dead deer a day latter.
all comes down to shot placement!

It will go down sometime maybe a couple counties away from you.

I'm going to put up a couple AR's later this week.

I was just going to aim at the head.
Will the deer be running?
Will the wind be blowing more than five mph.
Will you be shooting where there are leaves falling.

I have personally shot the lowe jaw off from a nice doe on my property from attempting a head shot. The wind was blowing seven to ten. I felt sick when i sean her the next day running around all fucked up.

I have shot a couple hundred deer in my life. No i am not kidding.

Head shots have a low rate of probability with a small caliber round.
