RE: .223 with 45gr Barnes XLCs??
I have never used them but if deer were the target I'd opt for the heavier 53 grain triple shock.
Another couple of better choice would be the 60 grain Nosler partition and 55 grain TBBC.
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency........... Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."
