    Shots on skunks and cats can easily exceed 50yds so more mass and velocity are necessary.
    Forget about shooting skunks. Use hand grenades or mortars. Turn them into absolute nothings.

    I hated when my dogs tangled with skunks. The only way to get rid of the stench was to bathe the dogs in gallons of tomato juice.

    Look into D-Lemonine. Mix it with Dawn dishwashing soap, a cup of hydrogen peroxide, and a cup of baking soda.

    If you happen to be in the field with your dogs and they get skunked find the nastiest, smelliest muck you can find and roll the dog in it immediately and throughly.

    When it dries and falls off most of the scent will go with it.

    Our here dog/skunk contacts when you are hunting happens really, really, often.


    Rub it in and let it dry thoroughly, then brush it out. If any smell remains, rinse and repeat.

    The neighbors around here really get bothered when I use explosives in town. Hell they won't even let me shoot Tannerite!

    I've never found any pointed pellets that could deliver any reliable accuracy.

    Any with a skirt will destabilize when going supersonic. I have seen these fired with nailgun blanks and good accuracy far above supersonic. .22 cal.
    Yep, I'd wrap that in bacon! KEEP AMERICA GREAT, TRUMP 2020

    Here is one fired into an 8 pound lead weight from my Crossman Crusher nitro spring gun. A nailgun blank would do far worse. IMG_20200802_161011.jpg

    One must see groups to determine reliability of results...

    I've done pretty well with them so far. About 1 minute of squirrel or collard dove at 40 yards.

    No signs of keyholing either on paper.
