    Sierra 55gr 1360's (Spitzer) over Varget.

    Very accurate round & drops them on the spot with very little meat damage.

    Used this combo in various 22-250's for many years.

    Just sold my .22-250. The reason was MEAT DAMAGE !

    Great for fox , But hit a Muntie in the guts and its only fit for the bin as there is green every where. Chest shots are quick kills due the the masive Hydroscopic shock.
    Most if not all .22 Bullets are designed for fast explosive vermin control.

    Get a .243/25.06 or a 6.5 and use bullets with thick jackets designed for deer.

    try get yourself a .222. no damage with them. i use mine up here in scotland for roe deer and they have enough knock down power too put them down without them taking a step. goo bullet choice and very effective.

    Any of the .22 centre fires are fantastic for these two types of deer especially the cwd
    i tend to use hornady v max 55 grain and to be honest as long as you are off the shoulder meat damage is not that bad
    The same can be said for any calibre its all down to bullet placement
    regards andy
