Wow, I am not that good. at 100 yards I could maybe put them in a soda can with an occasional flyer. I need to get some pro training with a rifle. I have done it for pistols and it improved my shooting immensely.

Is creedmore too much for deer in Texas? they are little more than a fair sized dog.


most guys here use either a bigger slower round, or a small fast round like a .243.
