Anyone have a favorite bullet that they prefer? I love the AK 7.62x39mm round. It has some great stopping power. Basically, it knocks the living crap out of you.

In a pistol I prefer the .40 S&W. For a general rifle round I prefer a .223 Remington. For long range I prefer .338 Winchester magnum. IMO there is no "does all" bullet.

I love the .223 because it tumbles on impact. I also really enjoy pretty much any hollow point pistol round, and of course the .50 BMG. It's a beast.

Just don't expect anything of value behind your target to still be in one piece with that round.

No doubt. I wouldn't want to hunt with that round.

I would honestly love to see how big of a hole that thing would leave in say a dear. At least you'll know it's dead.

They mostly use it on water buffalo. My buddies Ron and Phil go big game hunting once a year in Africa. If you hit a deer with that round you would pretty much be left with hamburger.
