Re: Prairie Dogs?

It apears to be a ring but it actualy is just where they rub in the ammo box.The second box from left has a couple of live rounds in it yet.The cases neck up in the boxes are confirmed hits(kinda pitiful)but it was the first I've shot since deer season,the dogs where small and the yardages long(all past 500 with the 6&6.5/284s).The 6.5 only got two dogs but I recieved the gun on Wensday,put the scope on it on Thursday,loaded rounds for it Friday morning ,boresighted it Friday afternoon and then turned it loose past 500
From left to right 140g 6.5-284,105g 6-284,55g 223,75g 22-250 and 32g 204

Re: Prairie Dogs?

Mach V,

I recognized that ring right away. It brought to mind a trick I played on a buddy of mine. It was his first time out and I had not told him to put foam rubber in his boxes to take up the slack. (850 miles will put a pretty good ring on the case) The boxes he was using put the ring just about where you would see case head separation.

We got set up, and I walked over and grabbed some of his reloads and asked if he really wanted to shoot these things with that ring showing certain case head separation. He started sorting out the ones with the worst ring, and I, of course grabbed them and stuffed them in my pockets.

I returned all of them some time later. Empty of course. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Prairie Dogs?

skip AI,

As Ric said some larger, some smaller. I would much rather shoot at these than the ones Mach V was shooting. It would equate with shooting at chipmunks at 750 yds. Very sporting to say the least. Jim
