All the debates on here about the smaller calibers being used on deer. Some folks think you need at least a 100 gr bullet to perform well on whitetails. Well I've had nothing but good results from the 22-250 and 55gr v-max. I just got a 204 ruger and to the deer woods it will go with a 32 v-max. Has anyone shot a deer behind the shoulder with a 204 if so what were the results? I am only going to take behind the shoulder shots no neck shots, I'm going to find out what this baby will do. My main concern is penatration, if it will penatrate the rib cage. But of course I'm going to check it out on a few hogs first.
