I have hunted all my life with either my 30-06, my .308 or the .270 I bought a tikka 22-250 gun to varmint hunt with a shoot a yote or two but never really considered deer hunting with it. Just wondering if they are good deer killers also? I know that the first slight touch of a branch would make that tiny bullet disintegrate is the bad part. So if you have any information on the use of this caliber on deer, let me know. Thanks guys.
