Re: Wyoming changes caliber laws !!

DRT makes some pretty sweet .223 ammo and its even lead free, not that I like lead free I just live in a cracked out state the requires it. The images on their terminal impact is pretty amazing. Friends of mine are sponcered shooter with them and they swear by them for pigs. They turn the vitals into soup upon impact.

Www.drtammo.com

Worth a look.

Cheers

Tony

Here in Florida I have had good results on deer with Sierra 65 gr Game Kings. These deer aren't much bigger than antelope. But I've never shot one over 50 yrds

The 62 gr TSX. 70 gr TSX , 60 gr N.P. 64 gr Power Points, 65 gr Game Kings and 75 gr Sirocco's. The only problem is u need a 8" twist in the 223 to stabilize the 70 +75 gr bullets and a 7" would be better.

Cabelas , Midway, Graff, Natchez, and Mid South have them all. Or at least they usually do.

Ordered a box of Swift sciroccos in 75 grns tonight hoping they will shoot as good as the 75 gn Amax outa my 22-243. Looking forward to laying down an antelope with the small bore this year!

Does anyone have any experience the Scirocco and the 22-243?

Outa a 22-43 I'd just shoot the amax. It'd work good on a prairie maggot !
