    Best bullet for Armadillo?

    As the news delivers reports of another Armadillo related shooting (in this case the shooter shooting himself (in the face) with a ricochet off his chosen target species), it does beg a couple of questions:

    (1) What is the best bullet construction and calibre for them
    (2) Should we be cladding our soldiers in Armadillo skins (if we can get them - or is this not done because we can't get them)

    Nooooooooooooobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!! Our main weapon is.........

    Yes, it was a humorous article.

    In all honesty, they are difficult to kill. With dozens under my belt, taken with EVERY legal means, I am convinced it is head shot or nothing!

    Somewhere, probably in Elmer Keith's writings, I read that semi-wadcutter (or Keith type) bullets were best for such things as the sharp edge of the bullet would "cut" into the shell rather the ricochet off. Certainly round nose bullets are probably the worst offenders in that if the shot is not dead perpendicular to the rounded object.

    Probably 5.7 x 28mm JHP? Maybe?
