I know old timers that have used 1911s for deer successfully, my question is this: what do you all think about a 45 for deer out of a carbine? I love challenging myself with what others think is dumb cartridge choices for deer. Along the way, I have found that a 223 is actually a great choice for deer if you wait for a perfect shot. The the fusion ammo, they don't go far when hit in the vitals if they go anywhere. If I shot 75 yards and under does the 45 have the power to take my whitetail? Give me hard facts, I love numbers and I know you all can give me the numbers on whether it will cleanly take a deer and at what ranges.
