    Look at that, the .45 acp packs enough punch to kill even with gut shots!

    Is there any meat left? Hmmm, I guess it's like they say "Go big, or go home?"

    A 230 gr. bullet at 850 ft a second. What did you expect. A 32 gr. .204 at 4225 ft a second would have turned that animal into a pink mist and hair. Congrats on the kill.

    Well it started at about 20 yards but after the impact it flew through the air another good 20 yards..... hahahaha

    It was a 200 gr swc. I've been shooting about 200 of them over the last day.

    Nah, 10mm is a little overkill, unless you're doing forest clearing by the acre.

    :lol:

    Exactly Andy. 10mm is my round of choice when clearing timber. The squirrels are just collateral damage.

    What is wrapped around the squirrels foot. Looks like an intestine bracelet.

    I was deer hunting with another member of this forum (witness). We were through for the day and loading the ATV's. I was wearing a 4" S&W 44 maggie with some of my "Deer Thumper" reloads. Rabbit ran out of a brush pile, angled across in front of us then straight away. Geoff said, "It's in season!" I drew and took the shot at about 15 or so yards. Caught him just below the sphincter. When we picked him up, it looked like I had field dressed him. Ribs, shoulders, head, all the 'meat' was intact. Split straight down the middle and insides completely gone. He still tells that story on me.
