222 at 300 yards

Im going on one last ground squirrel shoot this weekend so I figured I would use my 222 and use up the 300 shells I had loaded up from the montana pd shoot last year. These particular shells are loaded with the 40g btips and 21g imr-4198. They are very accurate usually giving me .25" 3 shots at 100 yards. I wanted to zero at 300 yards, so here is the 5 shot group at 300 yards. It measures a smidgen over 2 inches. I should be wacking them squirrels!!

Good shooting. All i could add is that you want to hit the animal as close to the ground as you can [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] It makes them do those spectacular popups!
