Well guys, I tried out the RCA SuperMag wad cutters from the Marauder. I got two house sparrows and a chipmunk. They hit like a sledgehammer.

The first sparrow was facing away from me. The shot entered just behind one of his legs, and exited the neck. He dropped right down in a shower of feathers. Not even a twitch. 

The second sparrow, I shot in the back, and it blew the whole chest out. Quarter sized exit wound. Again, not even a twitch. Must’ve hit the breast bone from behind. 

The chipmunk, I hit in the spine, right by the shoulders. The impact knocked him over on his side, and his front legs tried to run for maybe 7 seconds. Then he was still. I have a pic of the second sparrow I’ll post later.
