    What do you want to shoot at and how far?

    70gr SMKs up to 100gr gamekings and everything in between except Berger 95s will work.

    Shot a Coyote in the shoulder bone with a 87gr V-max out of a 6x284. I think bullet blew up on impact. BIG BIG entrance wound,tons of Blood that looked like it was blended. Small exit hole. Yote rolled on his back like he was trying to scratch it.Wiggled a couple of times and breathed his last. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
