Ground squirrel pics **graphic**

Took the 204's out last week for some relaxing ground squirrel shooting. Only made it out a few times this summer. Managed to get some frame by frame action shots. Enjoy

    That is some amazing photography! Nice shooting. What was your longest shot? Some day I am going to look at the prospects of a .204 of some type. I may venture into the 20 practical. What grain bullet, powder, primer and velocities are you getting?

    Sorry for the late reply. Been away on holidays. My longest shot on a g-squirrel with the 204 is 490 yds. Farthest shot captured with the camera is just over 200 yds.
    I used the 26 gr varmint grenades, the 32 gr V-max and 32 gr Nosler BT's, and the 39 gr sierra BT's.
    Favorite powder is RL-10X, 24.8 gr for the 39 gr BT's and 25.8 gr with the 32 gr V-max & nosler BT's
    For the 26 gr VG's, I use 26.3 gr RL-10X but have experienced some flattened primers with this load. I don't care much for the varmint grenades as they have a lousy B.C. and run out of steam within about 250 yds. I kind of compare it like trying to throw a styrofoam cup compared to a baseball.
