once hit a squirrel in kidney area, 50 ft or so

with Rem jacketed swc 185 gr wussy loads. He hung in the tree. I shot him again, hit the kidney area on the other side of his spine, and he STILL hung in the tree for a few seconds. He fell, landed on a big pile of leaves and ran off, but I caught and stomped him. So much for 'big bore" swc's with w a f as stoppers. :-) can't even stop a tree rat unless you REALLY soup them up, over 1000 fps. the factory loads are about 700 fps, a pathetic 200 ft lbs, like a Makarov or .38 lrn.
