Now, back to the .223. I used to know a person who shot multiple deer with the .222 Remingon and he said it was basically perfect. He switched from the .30-06 to the .222 he liked it that much. I personally wouldn't make a habit out of hunting big bucks with the .223, but if I just needed to fill a doe tag I wouldn't hesitate.

So Trigger Creep you would not put it on the line for a big buck with a .223 but,you would risk wounding or losing a doe pretty much summs it it up for me.
Don't be mistaken, my two deer guns right now are a .270 with 150 grain Nosler B-tips, and a .30-06 with 170 grain flatnoses (loaded to about 2,550, its a mild deer/bear load and it's incredibly accurate). I ain't undergunned when I go deer hunting.
