Ya can't! Somewhere along I-80 when they migrated to Idaho they lost there phazaze. If your good a very long stick, willow maybe, can be used to wack 'em.

When I first encountered them I lead them way to far.

Re: Subsonic 270 loads ?

Just to put closure to this thread. My 10 twist barrel wouldn't stabilize any 130+grain bullet at subsonic speeds. It did stabilize the sierra 90 grainers. I used trail boss( about 9 grains) and standard primers and had no ignition issues. This was in 60+ degrees. For colder weather I believe I'll use mag primers just to insure ignition. It was plenty accurate to 50 yards witch is as far as I've shot it so far. At subsonic speeds there's still enough energy to pass through a 4x4 but the bullets doesn't expand, it tumbles on impact. No idea what it will do on a softer impact surface.
