I grew up shooting prairie dogs with a 7mm mag around Farwell, Bovina, Muleshoe and Portales NM.

It's like hitting a water balloon.

    I can't remember exactly but I think they were Speer 130gr BTSP's, that's been quite a while ago! I moved east and south in 90 and that was right after my first enlistment was up. Been a lot of miles since.

    That would make sense. Those bullets should have been light-jacketed, and would have generated enough speed to provide proper splatter effect. I was using the 168 gr. MK's for the higher BC.

    Even at 300yds or less the 25-06 popped them pretty well.

    Not quite the same effect of the 220 swift but pretty much anything running in the 3000fps or higher range with a light jacketed hollow point is going to do so. My first Ruger #1 was a 25-06.
