Panda we can use the 223/5.56 on deer here in Missouri, some say it is no good for that purpose but if you place your shot in the right spot they do a good job. If you can come across a book titled Hatchers Notebook he did a study on the round and has some very interesting results on animals shot with one. i switched last year to it for deer hunting due to my rebuilt shoulder and they wont let me use a recoiling rifle on it. So go for it snd put a scope on ot and you will be ready to go.
