I believe you create a dust ball under his tail and see him grab high gear and possibly hit the nitrous.

They are easier to hit on the second shot if they are running straight away...  my experience is the sharp crack in front facilitates that better!

If that happens in the wild, you’ll get a pic for sure.   I did see an iguana down in the Klick a few years back.

I would guess at 250 you would need about a 2 body length lead
