OVERKILL is when, in these cases, a weapon that FAR...FAR exceeds what is needed to kill an animal, is used.
.458 Winchester on groundhogs..?? .375 H&H on prairie dogs.. rifles with as much as 4000 ft lbs of energy used on an animal of 150-200 lbs LIVE weight. THATS OVERKILL.
I havent seen 2 animals one more dead than another...but I have seen 2 of which one was blown to smitherreens!
Broz stated he was using it as a test pattern for his elk gun...and I understand that totally and cant disagree with his principal...but as an "everyday" rifle for "goats"....wheeeeee doggies!!
BTW...a 223 on goats in UNDERgunned!
