Awww. Go 7.62 X 39 or go with a 7.62 NATO (.308 Winchester) rifle for deer. Get a bolt action rifle in either of those calibers to drop a deer or to use as personal protection. Some states do NOT let people hunt deer with a .223 rifle because the small round isn't as effective or humane as it should be. That being said, go a little bit bigger just to be safe. After all, you don't want to have to track a wounded deer 20 miles to enjoy it.

You can hunt deer in SC with a .223, you can even use a .30 carbine if you're using soft points..

I usually hunt polar bears and elephants with a 223. Shot placement is important.

By all means get a scope, at least 24x.

Personally, I hunt those Martian tri-pods with an M-1A and it gets the job done...

Obviously, the second liar in this forum doesn't stand a chance, eh?
