Re: .308 168gr AMAX performance on prairie dogs?
I used the 168 amax match out of my AR (POF) at about 50 - 200 yds. basically mine were blown in half or nearly in half. One time i did actually see the 2 parts flip end over end in the air through my scope at about 80 yds out. My 223 75 gr hollow pts match ammo puts a nice hole in them but not as much "action" out of the kill i guess.
The nice thing about using these, is for longer range shot when it's windy out. I found that i didn't have to account for as much wind as with my 223, obviously... and they reach out alot farther for the kill.
