This thread should probably be up in the varmint section...
It is an ideal Sage Rat, Prairie Dog, Crow, and Woodchuck cartridge. For western (girlie) 'yotes, it's ok, but for north east 'yoyes, it's not enuff gun.
I got one. A Rem 700 CDL Stainless Flutie Ltd Edition.
The factory loads are a bit light. Hand loads easily meet the specs - 4,000+ fps with a 20gr V-Max (and no signs of pressure).
3,800 with a 25gr V-Max.
It is quite accurate, the barrel is really nice, cleans up quick (with Hoppe's #9) and it doesn't foul worth a damn.
It is "pretty"!
Spring has sprung, da' creek has riz, I wonder where dem kitties is? Here, kitty kitty kitty.
