I just bought a new tc venture in 22-250 and just wondering about what to shoot out of it. At least what would be a good starting point with this particular rifle. Standard rifle not fluted and not a bull barrel. I put a Redfield revenge 4x12 on top. I hope to kill some yotes and cats with it and maybe the occasional va turkey. Thanks ahead for any info.

Haven't shot any yotes with them yet but I don't think they are designed to pass through. I saw a piece the other night with Fred Eichler at the Hornady plant and they shot a 55 gr .223 VE at a a block of ballistic gel to show how the bullet was designed to perform. It penetrated about 3-4 inches and blew up, making a pretty decent cavity of mush.

this is not the Fred Eichler video at the Hornady plant and this is a 53gr .223 Vmax load at 200 yds into ballistic gel but the results are pretty much the same.
