264 Cal and the varmint bullets

Does anyone ever hunt predators or woodchucks with 6.5 MM and or 264 caliber rifles... I know the 264 shines with 140 grainers for deer.. Just was wondering how this caliber would work for chucks and or predators with the lighter HP bullets you can get.?????

Re: 264 Cal and the varmint bullets

I have for many years. You can load an 87 grain bullet to 4000 FPS. in the .264 Win Mag. No math necessary, you can kill chucks as far away as you can spot them. Way, way overkill, but much fun. I know lots of guys who load the 6.5 Swede for varmints with great sucess.
