Re: Ideal weapon for Prairie Dogs
When I faced that decision a few years ago I went for a Rem 700 VS-SF in 22-250. My buddy got a Ruger in 223. We both had a blast but I had a bit of advantage in the 3-500 yard shots. Of course I claimed that it was all the shooter [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] . Most shots were in the 100-250 yard range and both did very well. If I had to do it again, just for p'doggin, I would go with the 223. The cost of the ammo alone is a big chunk. I shot my friends Ruger with mil-surp ammo and got a one hole, 4 shot group at 100 yards, that is better than I ever did with any ammo in my Rem. That is hard to beat for any price.
