    What is the most over-kill you have ever done on an animal? My dad once shot a ground squirrel with a Ruger Super Blackhawk 44 magnum. really all that was left was the tail. I once shot a horsefly with a 223. It had landed on the bullseye of my target (or at least I think I hit it there wasn't anything there to tell.

    12 gauge vs. field mouse. "where'd the mouse go?" "Huhhuh, what mouse?"

          To be honest I dont see why you would want to over-kill anything. What is the purpose of that?

                  Shot a squirrel this year with a rage 3 blade right up the butt and out the neck. Killed and cleaned in one shot.

                    Dang Clay I thought I was the only guy that ever shot a jack with a .338. I have shot a few prairie dogs with it as well. I suppose I should bust a cap on a picket pin with the old .338 to top you. You guys have probably seen "Best of the West" on TV where they shoot trophy game at long range, my son and I decided to create our own TV series called "Least of the East" by going around shooting the smallest bugs, little rats, minature deer, or whatever at point blank range. Do you guys think it will be successful? Before you fellows start questioning my thought processes and posting those condescending remarks I am just kidding again.

                      I know a guy that loves to overkill, and has plenty of time, money, and iron to do it with. He builds semi-custom dangerous game rifles. With him, I've vaporized a gray squirrel with a .338 Win at pretty close range, and blinked woodchucks from existence with a .416 Rigby. He had a .470 NE for the same that day. PMC every time!

                      It's not really my thing, but I couldn't help but go out and try it after hearing all his stories. I think I got it out of my system, for now.
