Headshots on most animals is a low percentage shot if your chasing meat but as has been said it's a better shot for meat as it's instantaneous death,no suffering on the animals part and no chasing.

To headshoot things as small as a PD,rabbit,Hare,fox,coyote etc takes a lot of practice with your rifle especially at long ranges(200 yds +) as things like wind come into play and a rabbit's head is a very small target at these ranges.
I learnt to headshoot foxes for their pelts by trying to headshoot rabbits at ranges out to 200yds with my .222 and believe me I burnt a lot of powder doing it before we started fox shooting for their skins that were worth upto $50+ so the less pelt damage the better.

On bigger animals like pigs,goats,deer I like to smash the shoulder as this 1stly takes out the means of locomotion and 2ndly most of the animal's life support stuff(heart,lungs major blood vessels) are in the front 1/3 of the animal just in and around the front shoulders and for front on shots a low chest shot will do.

Rear end raking shots are a whole different ball game and can see a wounded animal going off and dying a slow painful death,regards

200 yard headshot is nice but nothing amazing.
Hell at that D, with a varmint setup, one should dot the eye.

Just re-read the OP........."standing" . Was that the chuck or you take the shot offhand?

Off hand and 200 is pretty good, esp if you called headshot

Headshot at 200yds standing is starting to get into the Bobby Lee Swaggert class of shooting,as even headshooting rabbits at 75yds standing is no mean feat either,regards
