A swimming Beaver wont have much of its head above water Right? Also they can get larger than the other critters mentioned up to 30-40+ pounds. So maybe the fragile bullets are not always penetrating the skull. Direct hit should do the job though?

A direct hit certainly would.

My one and only Beaver kill was with a .17m2 at 75 yards, swimming away from me, hit in the back of the head he was DRT.

Sounds like you need to load your own. A Lee hand loader, primer seater, dies, and components will cost you about 4 boxes of loaded ammo's worth. Midway has 4 non-ballistic tipped hollowpoint bullets available.

Looks like off an inch, off a mile shot.

I shoot pigs (not beavers) with mine a bunch and it puts down pigs up to 200lbs lights out right there , as long as you hit em in the light switch its nighty night instantly, now i have gone to the tmj bullets for my .22wmr and seen good results over the ballistic tips there,,, but id find it hard to believe beavers have a harder skull than the hogs ive been shooting but im talking from zero beaver experience so im curious now and dont mind learning a thing or 2 in the process
