Keep shooting what you've been shooting through it.  It will be good practice.  It will definitely kill them.  Ironically, the larger calibers more often than not plow right through them and don't really leave that much hide damage.  Most of the really bad hide damage comes from smaller calibers going really fast and hitting a shoulder on the way in.

Ok, I'll just stick with the Federal Premium 130gr. Sierra BTSP's I was shooting at deer last year.

I'm with the Songdog. A .270 is great for anything from coyotes to elk as far as I am concerned. Looking to get one myslef. Although a 22-250 is in my opinion, the best all around varmint gun.

Ditto the .270. I have a .22-250 and a .223 but I take most of my dogs with either a .270 or my favorite .300 with 165 failsafes. It's just what I shoot most of my big game critters with and feel most comfortable with. Besides most of the dogs I kiil are in the Carizos and the pelts are pretty raged for most of the year so I don't worry to mush about that. Shoot what ya got.
