    Hi all,

    Thanks Dark.

    Hi. Welcome. Please drop by New Members and introduce yourself!

    For a .224" bullet to hunt deer I would look at the Hornady 70-gr GMX All-Copper monolithic bullet.

    https://www.hornady.com/bullets/rifle/22-cal-224-70-gr-gmx#!/

    It has really great ballistic coefficient, and it holds together 100% even if your shot is angled or if your deer are really big or you hit major bone.

    Varget or RL-15 would work great. Varget is very temperature IN-sensitive.

    If I could not find Hornady GMX then the Barnes TSX or TAC-X 70 gr is also great as a hunting round for deer.

    I have a loading of 20.5 grains of AR Comp, under a Barnes 70 gr TSX, with a 2.250 overall length, basically max for a STANAG magazine. My notes showed it shooting 1.5 inch groups at 50 yards, from a 16 inch lightweight barrel, with a red dot sight.

    I use either Reloader 15, or AR Comp for my heavy bullets, I did see an improvement in accuracy from my bull barrel when I switched to AR Comp with a 77grain Nosler.
