    Think effective distance would increase with heavier bullets and a tighter twist (e.g. 1:7)?

  2. G.H. on January 27, 2023 at 4:25 am

    60 gr Nosler Partitions, I handload them but there is factory loaded ammo.

  3. Trumpie on January 27, 2023 at 4:27 am

    The 70gr TSX in 5.56 changes everything.
    Inside 100 yards deadly for me !

    What happened to sound?

  5. TexasSportsman on January 27, 2023 at 4:29 am

    .223 been taking out deer for decades. You don’t need a cannon for deer unless you ain’t got nothing else to do.

  6. V Remus on January 27, 2023 at 4:31 am

    Just curious: how long has your family been in the States? You have a Civil War era face. That’s not meant to be an insult. Great video, btw!

  7. Calvin on January 27, 2023 at 4:31 am

    Got a question to ask? , What length handguard is that on ur ar 15 ?

  8. brokendad on January 27, 2023 at 4:33 am

    Looking at a 5.56 bolt gun as I am in my 60s and have a really bad back. I have a question and it may be in bad taste, why is the 5.56 considered a small game round when tens of thousands of men have fallen to the round in war? I can no longer handle a lot of recoil and want a gun for deer and varmints (50 to 200 yards). Thanks

  9. Harley Lege on January 27, 2023 at 4:34 am

    I like that ar did u paint it

  10. dead north on January 27, 2023 at 4:35 am

    BARNES VOR-TX 223 REM 55 GR TSX 100 yards lights out

  11. Koja62 on January 27, 2023 at 4:37 am

    Love my fusion 62 grn outta my 16in.

  12. Miguel LaVoie on January 27, 2023 at 4:38 am

    Who ever says a 55 grain 5.56 doesn’t cut it is a moron.

  13. My Retro World on January 27, 2023 at 4:38 am

    AR-15 5.56 carbine with 1/7 barrel twist on 16in barrel what ammo would you recommend to hunt deer with? 100-150 yd range maybe less

  14. Pearl River Productions on January 27, 2023 at 4:39 am

    You need to learn the anatomy of a deer. The shoulder blade is in the front of the shoulder on the deer not where you pointed. Heart shots are an excellent choice and as a bow Hunter there is more damage done shooting right above the elbow of a deer. You should look into the ranch fairy channel for shot placement on a deer or hog

  15. Scott Behr on January 27, 2023 at 4:41 am

    I admit I didnt watch every second of your video, so I may have missed it. I dont know the rules in every state, but I do know that its usually illegal to hunt with ball (FMJ) ammo, at least in the several states that Ive hunted in. Just my two cents.

  16. CamaroSSGoals on January 27, 2023 at 4:41 am

    Buddy thank you for your video keep it up

  17. Farmer Wayne on January 27, 2023 at 4:43 am

    Ham boots!!!

  18. Mike Franklin on January 27, 2023 at 4:45 am

    I may have missed it, what range did you shoot the hams at?

  19. David kolean on January 27, 2023 at 4:46 am

    Why are so many people saying they only use for varmints, coyote or that size? They use them in war for craps sake! If the .223 can take down a 350# hog or deer, why do they say varmint rifle?

  20. GetTheF***offMyLawn on January 27, 2023 at 4:47 am

    What soft point are you using? Manufacturer, bullet type, weight?

  21. Trumpie on January 27, 2023 at 4:49 am

    Does your wife know you shot her hams ?

  22. Wesley M on January 27, 2023 at 4:50 am

    556 70 grain Barnes tsx 💪🏼💪🏼

  23. Wayne on January 27, 2023 at 4:50 am

    I know you still made yourself a ham sandwich after the video didn’t you? I know I would. lol

  24. James Jones on January 27, 2023 at 4:50 am

    Some of us a forced to buy cheaper options.How about a gel test on the Armscor .223 62gr sps round?Thanks in advance.

  25. Wild Bores on January 27, 2023 at 4:51 am

    I’m a Michigan man myself. your content is great!!!

  26. The Southern Life on January 27, 2023 at 4:52 am

    One of my biggest deer was with a 10.5in 5.56 quartering to me in the front shoulder and exit out behind the other at 80yrds with fort Scott 62gr TUI solid brass rounds they tumble upon impact and do some serious damage I was surprised at the wound channel and I use them for the exit wounds and penetration to get good blood trails I would never use a hollow point in 5.56 I’d rather a fmj. Edit forgot to mention the big 200lb 4 1/2yo 6pt only made it 40yrds before piling up

  27. Jacky Hallmark on January 27, 2023 at 4:54 am

    They make better calibers for the purpose.

  28. lester yarbrough on January 27, 2023 at 4:54 am

    Pretty good video except i take deer at 250 to 300 yrds easy.more often than not they never move.

  29. MaximusFuscus on January 27, 2023 at 4:55 am

    SKS with Bushnell scope. 7.62×39 Hornady SST. Took many large deer, bucks . Last one at 230 yards. Penetration was never an issue. You can have a 338 Lapua but if you shoot the leg it won’t help you. I don’t see why 5.56 won’t behave the same.

  30. Nolixss on January 27, 2023 at 4:56 am

    What’s your opinion on 223 vs 243 on coyotes, whitetail and hogs?

  31. 717 Predator Hunter on January 27, 2023 at 4:56 am

    I use Hornady 55 grain v max for predator hunting and just used the same this hunting season for deer. I Shot 2 doe with headshot. And a front brisket shot blew the heart up. My son also used my 223 ruger American ranch he shot a doe at 125 yards she ran 40 yards before dying. Then I also shot a doe at 250 yards and she didn’t go 20. V max is the way to go. IMHO

  32. Necrovarius on January 27, 2023 at 4:59 am

    I took an 8 point this last season with .223 soft point. At around 90 yards, it didnt drop it but it did enough internal damage as it ran.

  33. Grumpy GenX Granpa on January 27, 2023 at 4:59 am

    .223 absolutely will drop a deer! I’ve shot both deer and men with 5.56. It WILL break big bones. It’s funny how the same guys that criticize or call .223/5.56 “unethical” are the same guys just FINE with bow hunting! Tracking or waiting many agonizing HOURS to recover a deer they shot!
    It’s illegal to hunt with FMJ, in my state anyway. A 75-77 grain soft point is DEVASTATING. I had a bad experience this past season with my hillbilly neighbor’s loose dog jumping a deer I had sighted in! It jumped the instant I pulled the trigger and I hit it far back. After seriously debating shooting the damn dog, I watch the deer get up and start hobbling along 50-75 yards and laying down again. I debated waiting it out for a 6-8 hour gut shot but decided to creep up and see. Thankfully I decided to take the shot at 200-250 yds and a neck shot finished him. So glad I did! Cuz it was NOT gut shot, I hit the left hind quarter! When I butchered him, the bullet SHATTERED the femur! Broke and passed thru the PELVIS and still exited the right hind quarter! So nobody can say that a .223 doesn’t have the power to take large game!
    The only thing immune to the 5.56 was methed out “Skinnies”! Also known as Somalis. They were so damn small and skinny the fast moving 5.56 zipped right thru. Aside from a central nervous system hit, it just ice picked em to death!

  34. No Name on January 27, 2023 at 5:00 am

    It like to see this at 100 yards

  35. Philly Cheese Take on January 27, 2023 at 5:02 am

    The case is capable of so much more than it accomplishes in it’s .224 guise. The most efficient wildcat I’ve seen to date is the 6.8 Badger, which is pushing 100gr at 2850fps from 20" barrels. With those pills you can take any shot you’d take with a .308-family cartridge.

  36. Ernest on January 27, 2023 at 5:04 am

    Anyone else thinking about a hot ham n cheese sandwich? Hahaha

  37. Tim Bango on January 27, 2023 at 5:05 am

    If 223 is more powerful then pistols then why is it worst for a bear?

  38. No Body on January 27, 2023 at 5:05 am

    you dropped your pipe

  39. David Settle on January 27, 2023 at 5:09 am

    223 vs 22/250. What would you choice be

  40. Louw Greeff on January 27, 2023 at 5:09 am

    best shot is a headshot – period

  41. Lucas Hornbrook on January 27, 2023 at 5:09 am

    I use 77gr match ammo and they absolutely work great. I have shot through the shoulder, strait on, neck and broadside. All have worked perfectly. In fact strait on shot exited and took out 4 ribs with it. In all the vitals shots the lungs where turned to jelly. 223 is my preferred deer hunting round. There’s something enjoyable about taking deer with a round that just seems so perfectly efficient for the task.

  42. Cody Hale on January 27, 2023 at 5:11 am

    Homie must got some damn food stamps the way he just buys hams to shoot smh

  43. hipflip1011 on January 27, 2023 at 5:12 am

    Fun fact: in germany its prohibited for every game larger than roe deer. for the rest you need at least 6,5mm diameter plus E100 2000J.

  44. PeaNutbutter156 on January 27, 2023 at 5:12 am

    It has worked for many years. 243 as well. But it will have its limits.

  45. David Pate on January 27, 2023 at 5:16 am

    Awesome video getting into the 556 from Indiana newbie

  46. Cody Clifton on January 27, 2023 at 5:16 am

    I’ve hunted deer with a .223 for 15+ years. Every doe I shoot has been a head shot, I’ve had no issues making heart shots with good Bonded bullets.

    As far as hogs, I use a .22 mag most of the time, it’s all shot placement.

  47. Code Master on January 27, 2023 at 5:17 am

    Best Video Ever ! Thanks 🙂

  48. Brandenuzis6788 on January 27, 2023 at 5:20 am

    Never hunting with a .556 but .223 is amazing within like 100 yards for deer I shot my first deer with a .223 and it dropped instantly and I’ve shot a deer with a 30-06 at maybe 150 yards and I never saw the deer again lots of blood but never found it

  49. kevinberdine on January 27, 2023 at 5:21 am

    Great video! Thanks for posting.

  50. HogHuntUSA on January 27, 2023 at 5:22 am

    People that say 223/556 isn’t effective for hunting don’t understand ballistics. I wouldn’t ever recommend using FMJ. I think you should have gone into more info on the soft point. The soft point you picked behaved that way, but what any something like a barnes or Hornady cx monolithic bullet? Deeper penetration, later expansion, but and massive weight retention. You don’t even need a mono bullet to do that though. Hornadys American whitetail has a jacket and interlock designed to have a similar effect. The moral of the story that bullets have gotten high tech and impressive so you gotta do some research and pick the right tool for the job.
