I just absolutely love to shoot the 69gr Sierra Matchking bullets at targets but next year I'm planning a prairie dog or some other kind of varmint hunting "out west" and want to know if these bullets will work.

I imagine there is no problem with killing prairie dogs but we all love aerial acrobatics. I suspect I'll have to go with a more varmint oriented bullet but thought I'd ask.

How about marmots?

Any other varmints I should consider?

Never mind... I found this thread and although it is about coyotes and not prairie dogs it might well be what I was looking for which is the 69gr TMK.

I don’t think matchking bullets are ideal for prairie dogs or coyotes. Will they work, yes, more or less.

For prairie dogging I’d look to a 50-55 grain, highly frangible bullet. That’s where the phrase ‘red mist’ comes from.
