Shooting holes in paper one sunny afternoon, I was targeting a 1 inch square piece of orange duct tape at 200 yards when I noticed something on the target. Looked like a weed or moth or something. I placed the X hairs of my 4-16 scope mounted on a Howa Axiom 22-250 and squeezed off a round loaded with a 40 grain VMax and 39 Gr. of H414 powder.
The photo shows what a grasshopper looks like when hit with a Hornaday 40 grain V Max.
It didn't know what hit it.
