I also don't save pelts, so use 50-53 grain varmint bullets, generally under 200 yards.
When the terrain allows longer shots, I use my .243 Win with 80-85 grain hunting bullets because it holds better in the wind and hits hard over 300 yards.
People are like rifles. Some are tried and true, having great eyes, personality, and fun to be with. Others never seem to hit the mark with you. Still others go off half-cocked. Still, it's nice to know most of them.
