Yikes grumpy, we practiced every year at camp on our 300 yard target, that was all we could get. But 500 yards is sweet. Groundhog or coyote or fox? What were you shooting? Details man! Brag a little!

At that range, a 10 point buck probably looks like a varmint. :D

There is a whole ship full of them on Libby Island not far from SteveZee. Sunk by German U-boat in WW2. They ran her aground in the shallows between the island and a large ledge. Blew the top of of it to prevent it from being a navigation hazard. They are still there I hear, in cosmoline.

Prairie Dogs, there little when there pups , beer can size , and they move around alot, it took me a whole weekend to get my kill but I did and now my name is in the book.. :)

Can you see the dogs, nope, not without the scope.. Edit to add, Bragging... I know how to load a round for my gun, that last photo is five rounds at 110 yards, Notice the Dime, It's called a caliber group. I got the recipe right. :D

I got the chance a few years ago to take out a few woodchucks with a 50 BMG @ 400-500yds. Lots of fun, $6 / shot back then. That was a big brown and red mist, LOL.

Yup, my .222 Sako Vixen, previously mine, and a .257 Ackley Improved I had built would do that. Lots of fun. the best I ever did was a measured .333 inch group at 100 yds. with the .25 cal. Mauser 98 commercial action with Anschutz double set trigger and semi varmint barrel. It's a .270 now with a Pacnor premium barrel. Still shoots quite well. We don't have many ground hogs in Maine, Just bunches of coyotes and they don't stand around much. The other problem is finding a place to shoot 500 yards at something. I suppose there are plenty of places in the blueberry barrens but there is nothing to shoot at. Now that I am down here in Tenn. maybe I can find some long range things to shoot.

Plenty of ground hogs in Tennesee, as well as coyotes.

I'm in the 500 and 1000 yard clubs.. the 1000 yard club took more than a dozen rounds to dope the wind and range.. the prairie dog just fell over,
the trajectory that far out had the bullet almost traveling straight down. The bullet didn't expand any.
Those shots were made with my .243Ackley Improved, Hart SS barrel, muzzle brake, on a Sleeved Remington action, Semi-benchrest stock,
Jewel trigger set at 3oz, and a NIghtForce 12x42 scope..
A serious long range rifle.
The bullet was a Berger 96gr VLD.. looked about like the sharpened tip of a pencil... very pointy, with a boattail.. VLD= Very Low Drag.

I have several other varmint rigs,, two 6BR s both with Nightforce scopes, a 22-250, a .260 remington AckleyImproved, which is my
newest serious long range gun. ONe of the favorite rigs is a fully custom [my me] .223 Ackley Improved, SS barrel, Remington, Nightforce
Jewel etc... it pushes the 40gr and 50 gr Nosler Balistic tips and V-Max bullets wit within 50 fps of the 22-250, on 30% less powder.
I have several AR15 varmint rigs too, lots and lots of fun...223, 6br, and an AR10 in .308...


I think I need to go to Firearms Anonymous sometime soon. :lol: :shock: I might be in need of an intervention !! ..
