You are on the right track. Just practice your double-tap. Don't prepare for a follow-up shot, execute one.

I wish a 223 was legal out here for big game, I feel its a sweet speed goat round, but we have stupid min caliber laws nuthin less than .25 caliber for big game.

I like Sierra 65 gr, I killed deer and hogs with. Barnes 62 gr TSX works well too, the hold together and open up well.
