Thread: .223 the calibre of choice for munti and cwd

    .223 the calibre of choice for munti and cwd

    Hi all am new to the site and this has proberley been said before.
    I am just loving my .223 at the moment on the munti i havent shot a munti with my .243 since easter 09 i just love my Tikka T3 combo with 50grn Sako arrowheads. They are perfect for head/neck placement and do very little meat damage on a chest shot.
    I am yet to take a cwd with it but am trying to line it up at the moment.

    Happy hunting all and thanks for taking the time to read this.

    Glad to hear your getting plenty of shooting with your .223.
    I have a X-Bolt in .223. But only on ticket for Fox at the minute so does't get used very much (Have a 6.5x55 for deer).
    I was thinking of getting deer put on my ticket for the .223, but not many cwd/muntjac in Lancs. Although could use for Scottish Roe I suppose.

    Happy Hunting

    The .223 is more than capable on Roe..even if you have to go to Scotland (DAFT)..I have dropped them on the spot at well over 200yards with .223..

    The only people who have Never had a runner are liers or have not shot many deer ! Which are you ?

    What is that all about?

    I next to never head shoot them or neck shoot them and very rarely ever have.

    I have no need to brag about anything, there are plenty of people better than me!

    Shooting a Roe in the heart at 200 yards with a .223 is not the most challenging shot in the world, if you find this difficult I suggest you practice, many on this site will be capable of this shot!

    You have made a rather strange leap of assumption!

    But then again you have made it clear in the past you can't handle deer with a .243 and need a .308!
