Re: Trying to find min amount of bullet energy required to make clean kill at long ra
If you are worried, build a model of an animal. 3/4" plywood with a couple of wet down telephone books and then another sheet of 3/4" plywood should be a good example. Check and see what kind of damage your load will exert.
The energy exerted on the animal by the projectile is just a small part of the equation. You have alot of variables because of the animal itself. Condition of the animal, compensatory mechanisms adrenaline etc.... Don't get caught up on some magic number.
