Pelt-friendly .223 bullet?
Six-Gun Posts: 8,155 Senior Member
I've got an absolutely outstanding .22-250 V-Max load, but while the 1/4 MOA accuracy is exceptional, the bomb-like damage it causes on exit is not good for pelts. This year, I really want to learn how to properly skin and preserve my own harvested hides, so an alternative .223/.22-250 bullet that is more pelt-friendly is a must. Any recommendations?
Accuracy: because white space between bullet holes drives me insane.
Glad I ain't the only one with eyes acting up...
Well, when you consider that, here in Nevada, most of the "missing pet" signs have nothing to do with a PERSON taking a pet away, you could argue that ANY .223 bullet is indirectly "pet friendly" when used on a coyote.
I don't know...I've made some pretty monumental holes in critters with a similar BTHP Match bullet...assuming you don't hit a bone, they're not bad though...
