Re: Free 4 day prairie dog hunt

Guess I'm going to have to load a few different rifles. OH DARN!

The past two years in a row, I consumed about 300 rounds per day using 4 different rifles - (2) 22-250's, a 243 and a 22 hornet.

If you only have 1 rifle you won't be able to shoot that much- it gets too hot. I'd recommend having at least 2 varmint rifles.

Re: Free 4 day prairie dog hunt

I have a .308 and my 300WSM for the long shots. I have a 243 that I can use for shorter shots and access to a 22 Hornet that I can load for. Let's see if I win first. I'm sure there are thousands of sportsman signing up for this thing. Just a dream I would say.

Tank!!!

We shot there for the last 2 years with redbone outfitting and are going again in July. you will need at least 150 rounds a day and more that one gun. you can ruin a barrel real quick if you only use one gun.

35 gr V-Max with about 12gr Lil-Gun is sweet for the 22 hornet. That pops them pretty good within 100 yards if the wind is calm. The hornet is just really cool for dog towns because you can blast and blast, and the barrel never really heats up...
