Just wondered if any of you guys have tried these J-36 .224/69 grn bullets on Groundhogs? Did they kill or just punch holes thru them? They look nice but are VERY pricey! $36.70 for 20 bullets. Just a little too rich for my blood. WOnder if they'd do a discount for volume orders of 1000-2000?
Thanks, Sam in va.

dont bother, a 69SMK will do everything they will for 1/4 the price. you could buy a decent car for the price of 2000 of those bullets. A 75Amax or 60 vmax is probably your best bet for LR groundhog performance--and much much cheaper.

Expensive bullets will keep you from becoming more proficient because your afraid to fling $1.25 towards a piece of paper...at least i'd be afraid.

just my $0.02

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
