The major separation is what kills the deer. You should see what the heart and lungs look like when I pull them out. I didn't get a chance to rest on gel, but this load consistently passes thru two gallon water jugs.

It perferates the internals, shuts down the entire vital area.

Well two milk jugs is hardly adequate penetration unless you are hunting some REALLY small deer. Ask any hunting/firearms/ballistics expert and they will tell you penetration is the primary function of terminal performance, so compromising penetration for a mess of fragmentation is a poor trade in my book. I have known people in real life who used highly frangible bullets for deer hunting and every single one of them has lost a deer as a result, if you have not consider yourself lucky because at leased one of these guys is a crack shot and he was using a much more powerful rifle.
I don't hunt with anything that I would not get reliable through and through penetration with, and those bullets have never let me down.

Like I said in an earlier post, I hunt in Arkansas. Deer her typically stay in the 110-150 range, although there are some as big as 200lbs. I'm not hunting freakin elk with it. I once had a deer run off after being shot with a 7mm magnum soft point, I never found it. I did shoot it a little far back tho, which is why I don't take a shot unless I am certain I will hit vitals.

I am not trying to bash you upside the head calling what you are doing criminal or anything, but I think you would be much better served with a TSX, SGK, Partition, or TBBC should you come across one of those 200lbs deer, give one a try next time you need a box of ammo, those are designed specifically for deer class game and will give you much more consistent results then a bullet that breaks apart by design.
I use alot of SGKs in my rifles (6.5mm, 270, 7mm and 30 caliber) and I have been impressed with the results, I doubt any varmint round could give me a wider wound tract (not that I would even want one) and I have never had one fail to exit, if the .224" is half as good you will be impressed.
Don't take my word for it, I use larger guns, but here is what people who use them say.

I'm not irresponsible, I did my research before I started hunting with a .223. This load offers good penetration, and destroys the vitals. I pick my shots very carefully, and I know what this load is capable of. I typically don't have to shoot at them beyond 150yds or so. You would hate my friend, he uses 53gr superformance out of the box. He has shot three deer with it so far, and now one has gone past 20yds.

Do your own research before you judge, if you're not going to then keep your mouth shut.
Don't guess! You would be wrong.

Touchy-touchy. Who's judging? I said you choice of bullet was a subject for another heated discussion and it appears from your last few post I was right.

BTW, who the hell do you think you are telling me or any other member here to "keep your mouth shut"?

Maybe I shouldn't have told you to keep your mouth shut. How about this, I'll use what I know to work and you use what you know to work.

No sense in arguing over the Internet, or making the admin's job harder than it has to be.

I apologize to the administrators for my less than admirable behavior.

Yes!!

OP, 7.62x39mm is acceptable as a deer hunting cartridge. So long as you stay around 100yds or less. IMO.

I think we are all guilty of that now and then. Thank you for the reminder.
