Who said a 223 is as good as a 243? I missed that one. But a shot in the leg is still a shot in the leg, same if you unzip their stomach. He shouldn't come on here and say the 17 Hmr is better just because he finally made a good shot., lol.

All the guys saying “just work on shot placement” need to realize that some guys like to be able to knock down runners on the spot with less than ideal shot placement.
