No, although theoretically 'any' bullet could kill 'anything' there's a recommended minimum size and velocity that would be considered ethical. The goal should always be a one-shot, fast kill. The general rule of thumb would be nothing under 80 grains should be used for whitetail, and even at that small weight you'd need to go to a high-quality bullet (e.g., Barnes Triple-X) at a reasonably high velocity (like in a .243 or 6mm Rem.). 50-60 grain bullets are generally varmint rounds, and aren't designed with the structural integrity for serious deer hunting. That's why .22 calibre loads aren't legal in some areas (where I live, for example). It's not that they won't kill a deer, it's that they can't be relied on to do it ethically, given that there are tons of inexpensive, better suited calibers and loads out there.

Depending on your local game regulations it might not be legal to use this small of a bullet, however if it is legal to use i would go no less than 55gr. (legal minimum grain in Oklahoma)

In a 22-250 it isn't too much of a problem. A little tracking may be involved, but certainly possible

yes it can , although many will say they are to light , I have used them in .222 , .223 , 22-250 and have killed many deer with all.
read up on bullet design , varmit bullets are not made for deer and deer bullets not made for elephants , but all will kill if placed properly

Tough job for a small ballistic tip. That bullet is not really designed for larger boned and bodied animals. Fine for coyotes or perhaps even Coues Deer. Likely not good for a Saskatchewan buck.
A perfect shot will do it however if you hit bone or are off slightly at mid to long distances, it could go bad.
