I'd use a bigger rifle for deer if you have one. If not, it'll do.

It's also tremendously effective for cans.

Like Dalee said, under great conditions and a great shot anything is possible

Killed quite a few deer with one and if it was the only thing I had I would use it within my limits. Killed hogs, yotes and bobcats with one also.

I have hunted whitetail and my nephew a pronghorn antelope with a single shot new England .223. Worked fine, just have to make the perfect shot. Very little margin of error in a .223.

I've shot 2 deer with a .223 and after the 2nd I decided I would only do it again if I had to. I've got other calibers that I have a lot more confidence in to take down a deer. Coyotes and smaller, sure.

I have had as many hunters screw up shots on animals with large calibers as I have with smaller ones. I think a lot of folks with large caliber rifles are scared of them and will do some serious flinching when they pull the trigger.
