And I need some plinking ammo. Smile
Gunbot came up with midwayusa for about $2.90/rd. I know this stuff isn’t cheap and that I really need to reload for it, but I have to start somewhere.

I just got out of 45-70, so....I think it'll do fine for thinning out the turtles in my ponds. Smile

I've shot turtles in a pond from a high angle. As from a helicopter.

55 grain 223 bullets are more than adequate for turtles. The guys using ball ammo made quick work of turtles, even with off-center hits. Lots of water in the air, with parts flying.

I shot them with 55 grain VMax bullets. Spectacular splashes of turtle parts, fountain-like water eruption, nice turtle-parts slick on the surface.

You don't need 458 -- 223 does it for substantially less cost per round, less recoil, possibly greater accuracy, and greater expansion in a small critter.

[thread drift]Um, why shoot turtles?[thread drift]

This is a curiosity question, not a moral one.



"We may consent to be governed, but we will not be ruled." - Kevin D. Williamson, 2012

"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."

Charles Triplett O’Ferrall of Virginia - In Congress, May 1, 1888

Probably a nuisance in his area.

You'll need to be reloading if you're serious about shooting this beast regularly. Starline is excellent brass.
