I've done some reserach on the subject myself as I'm not happy with the v-max damage. Obviously bullet placement makes a difference but I just picked up some "white box" Winchester 45g hollow points. Read reports that they aren't too bad on pelts. Time will tell.. Aside from that, if in range, shotgun is my go to.
I'll let u know when I've connected with them. Need to put some range time in first.
