quite honestly, and NOT what I am sure you want to hear a .223 is a very POOR deer hunting caliber IMO
and yes many do use it , and some folks win the lottery too, a TON of deer have been killed with .22 rim fires 's too, but it doesn't make them GREAT deer calibers either!

BUT if you insist to use one, I would look for the heaviest grain bullets your gun can handle in a proven line of hunting bullet design and I would be VERY picky about shots and distance of them!
