Very thin jacket. Prairie dogs fine. Larger animals, iffy, at best. Perfect shot, ok on larger animals. Hit even a rib bone close to the skin and it will blow up.

the 55gr grenade needs 1/12 twist barrel. most all 22/250s are 1/14

then theres a lighter one that would fly past 4200. ive burned out my throught with light pills i dont shoot anything over 3800 in the swift anymore and i dont shoot lighter than 50s.


i think the varmit grades put the 223 right there with the 204
