No worries, I have a .223 for them as well, I'll probably use it most of the time for Yotes. But if I'm setup where shots might get long, I'll use the 6mm.

And it would be totally inadequate should one go after mule deer. Now one has a reason to make another purchase.

You're kidding, right?

I mean, we all need another rifle, but a 6mm will kill a mulie dead.

Absolutely not! One needs at least a 7 mm. Just ask my wife.

That's funny, I always thought that you needed a 6mm for coyotes, a .270 for whitetails, a 30-06 for mule deer, a .300 Mag(pick one) for elk.....aren't these rounds game specific? Don't tell me I've been acquiring rifles needlessly for game I plan to hunt in the future....

While we may disagree slightly, I think you are on the right track there.
