When I gun hunt I usually carry a lever, but when I do carry a bolt it's a 243 and I have a Dos Equis. Nahh, just joshing. I've had excellent luck with the 100 grain Sierra Pro Hunters and Gamekings. Plowed through some bone with them on several occasions and they held up better than I heard they would. I'm only pushing them about 2800fps though.

A buddy uses the 100 grain Remington Core Lokts and has had really good luck with them on some heavy bodied deer but again, he's not pushing them more than about 2800fps out of his little Model 7.

You should never mix guns and alcohol. Everyone knows you drink the beer first then shoot the empty cans. Makes for an obvious seperation of guns and booz.

Definitely a way to clear out those overcrowded public land hot spots.
