.40 S&W suitable caliber for deer hunting? No. absolutely not.

certainly not optimum, but honestly it doesn't require a lot to kill a deer if you put a bullet in the right spot. It would do the job at shorter ranges if you do yours.

just my opinion, others will disagree

I've heard of people using .40 carbines like the Kel-Tec sub-2000 for deer, but you get a little extra fps with the longer barrel.

Furthest has been right at 225 yards.
