Re: Woodchuck

How's about 3 pr. dogs with one shot. I've done it once or twice in my life, and seen it done rarely as well-- pretty amazing. I'm originally from MD, and i do admit to missing chucking in the old days.

Re: Woodchuck

My last trip to montana i did at least a handful of doubles and one triple--also got 4 at one hole(3 shots at 150yds w/ 223) in less than 5 seconds--they were little ones--just off the teat by the looks of them--was a pretty good trip.

with the triple i had 2 heads lined up and the third one came to see what was going on--they all bit it with a 50gn vmax--the third did take a finishing shot, but he was missing half his face and would be alive for more than a minute. even though their vermin i try to kill as quick as possible. My buddy said he had a quad, but i didnt see it.

Re: Woodchuck

Those woodchucks were about the only thing I miss about living in Pa. Down here in texas we got lots of prairie dogs but can't ever seem to get that close. My son and I have a blast sneaking to withinn a couple hundred yards but them things got good eyes. We usualy shoot from the trail wich is 400 to 700 yards from the feild they are in. It sure is fun.

Re: Woodchuck

Just returned from Wyoming Got a nice Antelope at 250yds, Mule Deer at 300yds and about 200 Dogs from 50 to 450 yds. Great fun! Shot a 7mm RUM in a rem sendero with a 6.5-20x50 LR Leupold. This rifle shoots 140gr Nosler BT at 3460fps into .3' at 100yds. The Antelope had a 6" entrance wound and no exit wound. The Mulie had a 4" enry wound and a 1" exit wound. Both droped dead in there tracks and just hit the ground. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Woodchuck

I think that big of entrance says you are spinning a FEW TO MANY RPM's--the same way you could shoot a coyote with a fast twist 220 swift and 40gn bullets and have it never enter the chest cavity.

Id be careful with that load on anything bigger than the lopes.

JMHO,
JB
