Default RE: Is the Ruger 204 Big enough for Whitetail

I won't say it won't kill a deer. And I do belive that the .22 centerfires will do the job, but please let that one lay buried. But it will NOT work for a shoulder shot. I also don't think it would work for a head or neck shot, unless you hit the spine. As loaded factory, I belive it is only available in a V-Max bullet. It would never make it through the bone, and would certainly wound the animal. Just play it safe and not try it.
