Squirrel "hunting"
Anonymous
I'm trying to get more clean and humane shots. I know these rodents are tough but I am having a low success rate, not hitting but dropping. Heres a pic of the 2 pellets I'm using from my. 177 ruger blackhawk elite with a ruger 4x32 scope. Do I need better pellets?

I have been using the Crow Magnum pellets, which do a good job expanding for tree rat removal.
