LOL I know how frangible most 130's are from a 270...I cant imagine shooting anything with a 90 gr and not expecting to totally destroy it. Shot a groundhog with a 70 grain from a 243 once...hehehehe...it was a sight to behold..

Now that theres funny!

Loads are designed to expand at a certain distance when it strikes certain densities. Match the load and you have a match made in heven.

Just wondering if it is possible to load an easier hitting Varmint round to save the fur on Fox? I usually shoot IMR4350 55g-57r loads (also 4864)which is great for yotes cause bullet rarely exits. So what would be minimum I could use to get my 90 gr Sierra HP to expand like it should but try to minimize exit holes?
Anyload, with any bullet, that develops much over 2000 FPS will destroy the pelt. I would try a HARD cast lead alloy bullet at a MV of 1300-1400 FPS. These will exit t least on broadside shots, but exit holes will not be too big!

I found that the 130's 140's and the 150's out of the 270 will blow a yote to pieces. If fox is on the agenda,I'd be following Ridge Runners advice, and get myself a 22 magnum. BTW, a 22 magnum will flatten a yote with authority too. The 22 hornet is an excellent round for them too. Dunno how many I have shot with that, and they fold up like a blanket.
