Re: 223

ive always used a regular ole 22...hit em in the head and thats that...223 is going to ruin hides...22 mag isnt even needed IMO..it'll work..might end up with exit holes..but will likely work a little better on body hits or whatever...


how are you planning to hunt em?? if its over dogs, a regular 22 will be all thats needed...find the eyes and hit em 1 good time and they come out of the tree dead...
