Can someone give me "real world" comparisons between the .223 and 7.62x39?

I'm considering another AK, but in .223. I'm hoping for a bit more accuracy and range. On a similar note, can the .223 reliably drop a deer as can the 7.62x39.

I personally would like to get an 5.56 AK also. It would have several advantages. Low recoil, more accurate, and the ammo when in an ammo shortage would or should be easier to get being a Hometown round. Nothing wrong with a 5.56 AK. The only negative is Mags( 5.45 Russian ) will have to be refitted or buy 5.56 mags at alittle higher cost. But Hell get 5 mags and that really is anough. Good luck WarDawg

Check your state laws.

Many states have made deer hunting with .22 caliber rifles illegal, due to spotlighters using .22 LR guns for quietly shooting deer. However, the .223 IS a .22 caliber rifle, and thus shooting deer with it in a state that has banned deer hunting with a .22 would be ILLEGAL.

"7.62...5.45...who's got it...where can I get it...are the boats docking yet?".
Something kind of warm and fuzzy about a supply origin not in Russia.
Have both a 5.45 and 7.62, I know the fear.
