I live in WY and shoot whitetail does with 223 using 65gr gameking and it works great. Haven't shot one over 212 though and I will not take a shot that is not perfect but heck when buck season shuts down the farmers will let you hunt doe's in the alfalfa in Dec and they just come running out to eat in the evening and Im proned out with RF and bipod and rear bag. Pick out the 3 fat ones as Im running a can and just lay them down. After the third shot they know something is up. Nosler is supposed to be making a 70gr accubond and i would try that also. I think the TTSX would work great also but I havent tried them.

Good luck

I've never had the need to shoot deer with a .224 cal bullet, but I've heard good things about Norma (0.224") ORYX BONDED BULLETS. Available from Brownell's.

Try a Speer 75g Gold Dot``````````````````````````````````````````````` ``````

the last antelope I shot was at 470 yards with a Rem 788 in 223 using a 55g Hornady sp with the cannalure with a muzzle velocity of 3100. Load was 26.5g of Win 748. He flopped at the shot. A couple of years later, I killed two legal does with the same load, and they both flopped, both around 100 yard lung shots.

Swift Scirocco II 75 grain would be my choice "if" I used a .224 bullet.
