like mentioned earlier..22 Hornet and don't leave out the .20 calibers
I shoot the Tac 20 and have no problem killing deer and piggy's..all head shots and no tracking involved..weigh more energy at 100yds than needed for head shots..heck if anything you'll have a nasty bloody mess on your hands.. all is good though

When my grandpa was alive, he took a "meat" deer every year with an old 5mm Rem Mag with a well palced head shot. I hate to think how many he shot and never had one take a step. Again, it's all about shot placement. He shot as far as 50 yards but no further on deer and always from a steady rest.
