    I was having a really bad day at the range with rifle issues meaning I had to reposition for every shot and I am only average on a good day.

    Shot off bipod left hand as rear bag.

    3 shots 100m

    Velocity 3110fps out of my 223

    Seems to go well in this rifle even with some poor shooting.

    Im sure I could improve these groups a shitload once i sort a wee issue.

    Shot a goat and a deer with this last weekend.
    Here is a recovered projectile from the goat. Shot was front on base of neck at 100ish yards.
    Recovered under skin on top of shoulders after all but decapitating it.

    That looks a fair bit like the projectile I recovered from a goat I shot using BVAC ammo.
    What rifle were those groups shot with?

    A Howa having a bad day, it smoked a red at 240 something yards the same day in the back of the head and out an eye so I guess you could say im confident in its accuracy in this rifle.

    So to any American reading this forum, yes you can take deer with a 223.
    Great shooting. I can't wait to get back into hunting again. Might give this Katipo a whirl, when I run out of Hornady Training stuff.
    What length barrel did you get the 3110fps from?
