    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
