Legal Calibers in Mississippi

Post by jbpmidas on Fri Feb 19, 2010 8:05 am

Is .223 legal to deer hunt with? I have read that .22 caliber was not allowed, but someone told me that .223 was allowed. The .22 caliber referred to the rimfires.

If I remember right there is not a restriction on calibers on deer hunting...you can use anything you want to except on WMA where it is posted on legal calibers...

The .233 is legal in Mississippi. National Forest Land requires a .243 Winchester or larger.

Not being ugly or anything....But why not use a proper centerfire weapon?...I don't get it ...the fascination with shooting large game (i'm gonna assume deer) with ultra small calibers like 22 LR.

Just because you can do it doesn't make it a wise practice

Well, MSRedneck, I would like to hunt with my AR, just because I want to. One place I hunt has no shot over 100 yards and it is family land. I just don't want to break the law. Why do some people insist on posting to topics when they have nothing to add to the converstion?

223 in the head make for one sho nuff dead deer!

If'n it was a nice buck, and you didn't want the head shot, I would think that with proper shot placement (easy at <100 yds) if you avoided the shoulder on entry, I would say a little high in the spine, or from an angle that hit the heart, or a good neck shot.....that the modern 223 hunting ammo should expand and kill very efficiently.

Would I preferentially use 223 over a larger caliber for a trophy buck, NO. But would I hunt with my AR,(especially for a close "easy" shot), YES. And a 2nd followup shot is a piece of cake with the AR compared to a bolt gun.

Of course the AR is available now in larger calibers too.....

2 cents

If you keep it under 100 yards everythings cool as the .223 has enough foot pounds. From what I hear if you keep it over 1000 you can make a clean kill with the right shot placement. The .223 loses that right after 100 yds.

actually at 200 yards the 223 has more foot pounds of pressure than a 30-30 or 35 Remington.Don't beleive me look it up on the ballistics table on Remington.com

Both of which I would keep under a 100 yards with Remington ammo. I did go look at the websight and the .223 has the .35 at 200 but not the 30-30.

they have beat this into the ground on the other site.... there is no restriction on what you can deer hunt with on private land..22 cal. and up.....does not matter what you use just use good shot placement...some rounds just don't leave a blood trail, they bleed in side...especally with small calibers....I have seen this first hand.

My dad spent 6 years in Alaska. One of the female gold panner/trappers he met up there killed her meat moose every year with a single shot .22 lr. She said there is a soft spot right beside the eye.

But I ain't gonna try it.
