Not disagreeing, but my old 35 Remington and 200 gr CoreLokt bullets, at 2100 FPS, left a heck of a wound channel. That said, my present preference for a hunting bullet would be my 260 and 120 gr BTs at about 2800 FPS, or something similar.

Talking about foot pounds of energy that a caliber and load generate isn’t worth much unless the energy is transferred to the critter. The bullet I use in the 260 won’t exit a big hog, so energy transfer is total, but it isn’t in a deer or coyote.
