Any shoot the BIB 40 gr bullets at prairie dogs?
If you are referring to the 20 caliber version, then I have used them, but only in a 20 Vartarg. My understanding was that it was a target bullet. I have only used them for benchrest target, However, it could be a very accurate small game hunting bullet, I suppose.
Shoot them in a .20P. IMHO, the most accurate .20 caliber bullet made. Groundhogs don't like them and would not hesitate using them for PDs.
Just a thought but why not ask Randy?
I did place a call to him and left a message.
Curious as to how these performed on coyotes, anybody?(Hide damage is secondary)
On the Bib website there is lots of good testimonials on this bullet. Check there in the photo section
I heard back from Randy today, Super nice guy. He had a minor episode and was out for a few days.
He said they are excellent for prairie dogs or coyotes.
He also recommended A2200 in a .20 VT
I bought some to try in a .20-223 Improved. Rifle shows up tomorrow but I need to fire form some brass before testing.
Read on Randy's website about a guy who uses them exclusively for coyotes with great results.
I have shot a lot of coyotes with them. They work excellent and very minimal pelt damage. My rifles are both 12 twist and will shoot 1/2" groups at 2 00 with this bullet and 8208 powder in 204.
Nick, I built myself a nice 20 VarTarg on a M700 stainless fluted 17 FB in a CDL stock that was what I considered to be a very attractive stock. I worked with several powders (with mediocre results) until I tried AA2200. I got higher velocities & better accuracy with 2200 than any of the other powders I tested.
Received 1000 today, Randy is the best in the business!!!
