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.
It is far more important to be able to hit the target than it is to haggle over who makes a weapon or who pulls a trigger.
