I voted to leave it alone. If removed you could get people trying to prove how good a shot they are and start taking unnecessary risks of wounding animals. It's similar to people who fish for salmon with trout gear for the fight. The difference is you might wound an animal that runs off and dies and is wasted or doesn't die and is mutilated. :twocents:

This is true. One little mistake in shooting the animal will suffer if the round was a bit too small. I 100% agree with your statement. Cockiness destroys.

The only thing I would change would be to make 20 gauge (slugs) legal for elk hunting.

Not to mention many of the people advocating for this change  are also the same people who:

- Claim to know better what terminal ballistics to expect than does the bullet manufacturer who has tested thousands upon thousands of their bullets, using the scientific method, and have tested those same bullets extensively on game animals and have analyzed enough data to come up with a statistically valid conclusion. 

- Claim to have wind doping abilities that if true would suggest that they belong in the U.S. International Shooting Hall of Fame

Winchester apparently feels their 64 grain 223 Remington load is adequate for deer:

That's the old packaging. It's been recently updated.
Nature. It's cheaper than therapy.
