This year I'm going to try something different, I'm going to use my AR. I did some homework and found some ammo made just for deer hunting with an MSR. Now I've always thought that the .223 was light for deer, but I think that I can do it just fine. Now a couple of reasons for this are, I want to do it and the place I'll be hunting is all shots under 20 yards. The spot is surrounded by dense brush and has a clear trail the deer have been using. So the way I see it, the range is so close that the 7mm mag and .30-06 will just blow right through. I have a .30-30 that I could use but just want to try it with the AR. I got 2 different loads to use but I'm leaning towards the Remington hypersonic in .62 grain. Has anyone else used an AR to hunt deer and what issues did you have? If you think I'm crazy, ok. I would just like to have a good old talk about guns for a change. So I would say any discussion about deer hunting and what your using would be fair game. If I remember right, max should have a nice BDL .270, how's it shooting?
