Though some mistakenly believe the .223 Remington is not suitable for hunting deer, and even though some also believe it is not legal for deer hunting in most states, Winchester gets it. They know that more than 80% of the states permit the .223 Remington for deer and they also know that a well constructed .22 caliber bullet will cleanly take a whitetail.
For 2012 they have a new .223 Remington load in their Power Max Bonded line of ammunition. This 64 grain bonded bullet is advertised at 3020 fps. I’ll be anxious to give it a try this year and see if it works as well as Federal’s Fusion or Partition load.
