    I have a 32 Remington in a model 14A Remington pump. Have only shot it a couple times due to the price of ammo for it but I started reloading now so once I get some dies I will shoot it more!

    Yeah I know what you're saying. But if you shoot an animal in a real "meaty" part of the shoulder with an arrow you will probably get a double lung penetration and maybe a complete pass through. With a 50 grain .22 cal. bullet you may or may not get past the meat. You sure won't get a complete pass through. When we hunted coyotes thirty years ago we shot 52 grain hollow points for just this reason. We didn't want a pass through on coyotes because of the fur damage caused by an exit wound.

    But that's like saying if you use an arrow with only a field point it might not penetrate enough. Same thing. Use the wrong bullet in a 223 and it may not work very well. Use the wrong bullet in a 270- it may not work very well.

    What do you think of a 53 grain Barnes triple shock in the 223? Or a 60 grain Nosler Partition?

    I haven't personally shot the 60 gr nosler but I hear its the most effective bullet on large coyotes and antelope

    I'm also looking at the Nosler 64 grain bonded bullet.

    The 60 gr Partition as stated above would be naughty medicine for a loper out of a 223WSSM, we've used it in 220 Swifts and 22-250 Ackleys and they are more than capable of killing a loper, even at 400-500 yards!!

    I think your comparison of a field point and the .223 is a very good analogy. I'd use neither one for hunting antelope.

    I am a big fan of Nosler partitions and have been impressed with their performance over the years. I must admit, I have not used them in their pea sized form. In larger calibers I've tried the triple shocks and personally I don't like them. I've shot a few animals with accubonds and may eventually switch to them but they need to prove themselves to me first before I stop using the partitions. I guess if I were a long range shooter the accubonds might have more appeal to me because of their accuracy.
