ive found the perfect round for wallabys,,90 gr hollow point in 264,i shoot all in the guts and they just collapse on spot,,even better than a head shot




that sounds worse that it is..... using a fully fragmenting load/something with varmit on box ...a body shot will send enough bits into vitals to down these critters quickly. spine/kidneys/liver in particular are going to be hit and cause complete shutdown pretty darn quick...dont try it with fmj or your premium deer loads though as it wont end well... if wobbly is upright the vitals are in top say 25 % eg from between its furry paws up wards and that is usual point of aim.
that said in 25+ years of hunting them with dogs Ive never found a wounded one yet....eg one carrying a gun shot wound from someone else.

I shoot a 223 and use either pmc Bronx flat nose 55gr or I use federal Powershock 64gr drops them every time.  Furthest I've shot them was 660 yards and dropped them from that distance . And the pic is real cheap with is good when you going  through 30 to 40 a hunt

imho AR15 is the perfect wallaby gun as it mixes the ability to take long range shots with having a realistic chance at a running shot.
  

This is my rifle, there are many like it but this one is mine.  Without my rifle I am useless, without me it is useless.

was going to ask you before MD but how do they react around dogs? do they sit and wait to bolt away in last second like hares? do you take them in close range with shotgun then? or are dogs able to successfully catch them?

they bolt...but a big bugga will grab dog and give it one hell of a hiding if it isnt smart..... a good dog giving chase will poke out way more than the one its chasing by noise alone....they pop out to see what all the fuss is about and hopefully cop a lead disprin for thier trouble....we chased/hounded them for years but now sit and snipe them,if things get slow we roll a few rocks down into gullies...landscaping and dog kennel sized one to bottom is the ultimate thrill Grin Grin
my old gsp/lab bitch caught 5 in her many years and was dynamite on possums. my current bitch isnt allowed to chase anything and had frustrating day at heel boy did I get the evil looks when wouldnt let her go for run.
