Has anybody used this round up here for predators. I'm looking for a round that will put em down but not put a big hole in the hide? I'm also looking into a new load for my 223, but just thought Id ask about this round.
I've used the 5.7 handgun to dispatch a coyote. It went in the ear and didn't exit. If it were me, I'd stick with working up a round for your 223.
I've always thought of it as basically a .22 Hornet with worse ammo choices.
I'f you can reload ammo you may be able to load some better bullets- all the ammo I've seen had very frangible bullets although other choices may be available.
