Re: .223 varmit loads...

If it was the big golden grandpa and grandma chucks in the south hills on our last trip they were at 300 - 315. You hit another one at about 200 that you and tanner walked out on and took pictures of. That was the one with the "deflated canoe" shaped cranium.

(All three were just lucky shots if you ask me. [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] )

Re: .223 varmit loads...

Man, your memory is getting shorter by the minute. The "deflated" chuck was at 150 yards using the 308 with a 125 TNT - it only gave us a head shot while hiding on that rock. I used the 75's on the chucks that were on the big rock face on our way back to your vehicle....Seems like they were way out there since I was having trouble finding them with the scope on 16 power. The huge grandpa chucks were hit with the 52 gr Calhoons.
I keep nature balanced - I hunt everything!
