I have a pair of SKS's. I hunted with one of them for two seasons. It killed deer. But most of the deer I shot required the aid of a dog to recover the deer. Some of the deer I shot with the SKS were hit in the shoulder blade. The bullet passed through both shoulder blades. I still needed a dog to find the deer. If I had shot those deer with a larger caliber they would have been down on the spot.

Both the 5.56x45 and the 7.62x39 will kill a deer. Neither is an ideal round for deer hunting. They both are OK for SHTF situations. In such desperate situations any gun will do.
