I’m in the process of working up a deer/antelope load for my .220 Swift featuring the Sierra 62 grain Gameking. I think for smallish deer, pronghorn antelope and mouflon sheep, this load ought to be as Goldilocks put it, “just right.”
You know me very well Guy. Unfortunately I’ve seen more than a few deer bite the dust from .223 and .22-250 rifles over the years. While I don’t necessarily consider them an ideal deer rifle, they are certainly adequate for the task.
