My parents might get me a cheap Russian Carbine rifle from the Man Mall and I was wonderind if the 7.62 shells they shoot perform well for predators.
Nobody cares about your season totals.

The 7.62 is very similar to the 30-30 as far as ballistics go and unless you can get some 100gr bullets or smaller then pelt damage could be bad.
Build memories, take a kid out doors and teach them about nature by interacting with it, hunting and fishing.

Learn from the past, don't dwell on it.
