First off I want to thank everyone who contributed to the discussion about the question I was asking about what grain for a whitetail.
. Everyone's comments were greatly appreciated and it helped me make an informed decision.
So I went out this morning, and some of my buds were supposed to come, but it all fell through. I was a bit nervous being on my as I had never been out hunting prior to this season, turns out though, everything was just fine.
Had my first kill this morning, used my .223 AR with a 64 grain Winchester. The doe dropped within about 10yd of where I hit her. It was at about 150yds. The bullet passed clean through both lungs and the heart. I was pretty amped after it happened. Needed to sit for about 10min for my hands to stop shaking so I could carry it out. Again thanks for all the feedback everyone gave!

I hope this is not too graphic for the forum, but wanted to show the shot damage. this was the exit side.
