What are you guys nuts????

Thats way over kill for cape buffalo and such.

I would highly recommend the .10 or even .08 Squirrel using any bullet under 10 grains. After 10 grains, the exit holes get too nasty to deal with and most of the time you will end up losing all of the meat.

I know this because I used my .10 caliber on elephant over in Tanzania last year. Using my Leica, I lasered one at an astonishing 672 yards with a 13.9275mph wind to the east. Aiming into the wind .0081 inches and holdover in at a hair over 2.745 inches, that 2 ton beast was dropped with a 9 grain custom bullet. Insides of the animal were nothing but jelly..........
