What ammo for small game....



Log in to see fewer ads
Anyone have a favorite ammo for hunting eatable small game...like squirrels, rabbits, etc. that won't make a major mess if the wrong spot is hit. The rounds most accurate in my rifles are the CCI TNT and WW Supreme but at 2200 fps and a big HP I was thinking maybe one of the heavies like the Federal Classic 50 grain or the new CCI Gold Dot HP might leave a little more to eat.

Thanks....Bob

RJM,

I'm only a "paper puncher", but, IIRC from reading what "hunters" have written..... a "Full Metal Jacket" might be what you're looking for.

Winchester & Federal has a 40gr.. Both @1910fps.

Or maybe a "soft point" Armscor or PMC.

We're (us Maggits) are looking at that new Winchester 45gr "Dyna-Point", it's real slow, only 1550fps (MV). Don't know if any of us has found any to shoot, yet.

Maybe, a real hunter will drop by, later.

Hey RJM; for gbt / cottentail the 40 gr. solids would be a good bet. Although the Supremes (34 gr. hp) have also proven to be fairly universal. To give you an example here's two shots of squirrel hunts, first up with Winchester 40 fmj

Ski; I've never shot the Armscor or PMC, nowhere to be found here. But I did have lots of luck with the Remington psp's. Great squirrel round, just hard to find off the shelf. So I wound up sighting back in with Winchester. Let me ask you, what is Winchester thinking with the dyna-point? Do we realy need a plinking round? Give me a break, 22wmr is not expensive, well maybe for you guys that shoot the ossi / v-max it is. I was hopeing they would have developed a psp or a nice 25/30 gr. 2200+ fps of their own.
