Re: 22-250 for deer?
I've cleanly killed deer with a 22-250 loaded with 60gr Nosler Partitions. For a kid or someone that is recoil sensitive, it's a cartridge that is easy to learn to shoot well, especially if that is what you have to "work with"?
They're pricey, but factory loads are available with the Partitions and I think, probably a Barnes choice or two? Practice can be with less expensive varmint loads. I am not a fan of using varmint loads for deer.
