I have been entertaining the thought of loading up some Barnes x bullets and using my 223 for deer hunting this fall. I am already familiar with the ballistics of this round and how it compares in energy blah blah to say the 30-30, and believe it is a very viable deer cartridge within certain limitations, which I am also aware of. What I am looking for is feedback from people who have used this cartridge, and what your results were, what bullet used and range used. Please no armchair comments from people who never hunt or step into the woods. Thanks.
