If you are going to use a .223, make sure the shot counts. Illegal on public lands in my state.

Yep, check for caliber legality in the state in which you will be hunting. I wasn't aware that a distinction could be made whether it is public or private land, though.

I assembled a dedicated hunting AR-15 last year in 6.8 SPC. It makes a great deer rifle for 300 yards and in, IMO. I took a doe using 110 grain Sierra Pro-Hunters, but got some significant lead tip deformation and bullet setback from repeated chamberings, as you might expect in a hunting situation.

I just sighted in with 120 grain SSTs for this season, and got MOA groups at 100 yards. Mr. Big won't stand a chance, hopefully.

Good luck!

Illinois doesn't allow rifles for deer hunting
