Has anyone used this round to hunt yet?, and if so what type of damage did it do to the meat. The round is for Hogs, Whitetail Deer, Antelope, Black Bears.
I tried the 223 and couldn't find a bullet that would drop a hog in less than 100 to 200 yards.
I tried everything except the 90 grain and there was just not enough energy.
In my opinion the 223 is to light for pigs and bears and marginal for deer and antelope unless
a head shot is taken.
An AR upper with a 6.5 or 6.8 spc would be a good Minimum for all the game you mentioned.
I love the .223 for small game and varmints and I built my self a .223 AI and stepped it up a
notch. but it still doesent drop them without a head shot.
Just my opinion.
