Groundhog getting some "air"

..okay, now we have all seen prairie dogs getting launched with hyper-velocity rounds out West...

this is what happens when a 6.5mm 139 gr. Lapua Scenar starting at 3,080 fps encounters a #20 groundhog at 83 yards!!!

switch to 1080p for the highest resolution...

Nice flip on that first hog. You just don't get tired of seeing that.
