Try to find some low recoil .270s, of find someone to handload some for you. I would think a lighter 130 grain at a slower velocity would be plenty for dogs. BTW, I just saw .270s at wally world for $19 a box.

when i said less than $1 per round i didnt mean by a fraction of a penny, its 14-17 per box of 50 and 20-25 per box of 100 of 9mm Remington JHP value pack at wal-mart,,, and i buy firearms in a common cal. cause i dont have the patients for reloading

one more thing,, there is no low recoil .270win ammo available in stores lol not even the rare 110g has a low recoil
.270 lets it know your there but not so much in my 18lb custom rig still the 9mm carbine (if flat enough out to 200 yards) just seems to fit the bill much better,, light, no recoil, and cheap ammo that can be had any where. i could just use my SAR-1 for that matter but believe it or not the 7.62x39 round is to much for the task at hand,, it over penetrates just as bad
