2 deer with 11" Ar 223, using ball ammo
Win White box 55 gr I"ve seen deer run over 50 yds with chest hits from 30-30 and 06. One of my 223 deer made it about 100 yds, the other only about 50 yds. I hit both at about 100 yds, broadside hits to lungs. at the ranges in these cases, the ball rd was down to 2500 fps from that short barrel, but still worked pretty good. that little rd is quite amazing, actually. maybe the 62 gr stuff aint much, but 55 gr aint too bad. i'd greatly prefer Partition sp's, tho. Those things make the 223 perform way better than you'd think possible for such a tiny bullet.
