You may have only hit one chuck, but I know you scared the crap out of a few with the 222 and the MOAG!

    brian b,
    Regardless of hitting one with my rifle. I still think that you killing one at just short of 500yds is like shooting a sow behind the ear with a .22LR in the feed barn compared to throwing dirt on one at 2300!!!!
    At least you didn't get skunked!
    Dave

    Moag addict I have needed a weekend like that for some time. I been reading again and my question is how come when we shot the moag we never used free recoil when we shot. I been reading about the 6mm br impoved and some of the benchrest addict used this technic.

    When you free recoil the Moag, it has a tendency to move the pedestals rearward too much. A light squeeze works best.
    Most benchresters use the free recoil technique, but not all of them. I even use a slight resistance when shooting the 6 Dasher or the .223! These cartridges kick so lightly that they give you the option of no grip, but everyone shoots a little differently. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Guys, I was not one of the Idaho Visitors and I hope is ok with you all for me to write this:
    I have always told my wife that God has been good to me because I never get envious at anything, and that has to be a gift of God. I do have to admit that reading these posts has been very close to OK! Im a little envious.
    You all sound like a bunch of good people. Thanks for sharing.
    Javier
