For years I've wanted to hunt the notoriously elusive Jackalope. I'm pretty new to hunting them and was wondering if a .458 Win mag would be a big enough gun for them. What weight and type of bullet should I use. I've hear a lot about bonded and solid core bullets, but I'm so confused. I'm looking for something with enough "knock-down" power, "killing" power, "stopping" power or whatever "power" I've been reading about in Gun & Ammo.
Oh while I'm out there I will also be hunting jack rabbits too. Do you guys think that .458 Win Mag will be enough to knock one of those down too? I noticed while watching this morning cartoons that Elmer Fudd used a gun with a two big bores on them, can I use a gun like that one? Somebody said to use a 7mm, but he pronounced it 7 "em" "em". Is that the same as the 7 millimeter? I'm just so confused, please help!! Any suggestion would be appreciated.
