Hey i am planning to hunt some varmint with my ar15 next weekend and i was wondering if i have to use hollow point and soft point only for varmints or can i use fmj.

No fmj. You want to drop the dog? Then use a ballistic tip or a soft nose bullet. In my experience i have found that a 55 grain bullet works best. I hand load and use a 55 grain sierra blitz king (ballistic tip) and have not yet lost a dog. Be sure to sight in the rifle with the ammo you are going to hunt with, this is important so you know were your hitting. Happy hunting!:13:
