Minimal pelt damage? That is no fun.

I had good luck with my .223 with a 50 grain blitzking, but it couldn't get out there and put the hurting to things. So I upped the antie and now use the 70 grain blitzking in my .243. If I hit in a good location, it is damn near impossible to see the entry hole and no exit at all. But usually in the spur of the moment, I can't quite hit where I want to and usually end up ripping the side off of a yote. Makes for some good pictures to show the guys at work on Monday and I don't do anything with the yote afterwards but take a picture.

The .204 with 40 or even the 32 grain red tip rapid expantion. somtimes you can't even find the hole.
