    I have a .458 SOCOM AR for bear and moose.

    I would not use .223, 300blk, 6.8spc or any other cartridge like that for those animals though.

    Iíve been using the 556 almost exclusively now for years. 180 pound deer inside 200 yards is in serious trouble if hit with a 77 grain SMK type bullet. 64 grain traditional soft points are pretty violent also. Pretty good luck with MK 318. Federal MSR was ok, but nothing to rave about. 55 grain soft points have been sketchy.

    Take your shot carefully, and do your best to place the shot perpendicular to the deer... Physics will do the rest.

    That is true, and I think more than a few places have caliber regulations based on firearm type than anything else. Certainly not based on real world experience.
