FMJ will put a tight hole through the animal...not a lot of expansion. That brand is pretty cheap in the U.S. If you like it, go ahead and buy it.

Hi enysse.
That brand is pretty cheap in my country $1.3/unit.
"FMJ bullets are good target"- I know.
"but you want an expanding bullet to hunt game animals with"-No.
Task : varmint and animals(fox,wolf) - max.100kg.

I liked the core lokt bullets you were looking at...a while back for game animals...they are really deadly, they expand very well and are cheap....especially if you hit the lungs every time. I don't care what anyone tells you..you hit a eland in the lungs...it isn't going anywhere. And hitting a animal in the lungs doesn't ruin meat...and animal can't live if it can't breath.

The problem with FMJ...is they don't expand....and unless you hit the shoulder bone or lungs or heart or head...you are possibly going to have a huge problem getting that animal. I think of FMJ...as a sword...in the right spot deadly...wrong spot (big problem).

Hi enysse,
thank you for an answer.
30-06 Rem.CL PSP-good cartridge and I use him.
Federal American Eagle FMJ 30-06 150gr. I want to use for varmint and animals(fox,wolf) - max.100kg.- I think that energies on 100yd. -300yd. it will be enough.
Now I want to test a cartridge Sellier&Bellot 30-06 XLC 180g. did you use this cartridge with a Barnes bullet, what opinions ?
With respect,
Kristian.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice
