Re: .308 168gr AMAX performance on prairie dogs?
I've used the 168 A-MAX on rabbits, squirrels, coyotes, and mule deer. The rabbits ranged anywhere from 50-400 yards, squirrels 50-350 yards, coyotes under 200 yards, and the mule deer I shot was a head shot at 690 yards. They are very accurate and if your scope has enough elevation you can probably take prairie dogs out to 1200 or so. Ive used it in a 10 and 12 twist, both worked well.
