Shot this guy yesterday at 200 yards with a 55 gr Ballistic Tip Lead Free out of my .243 at 200 yards. I didn't realize how big he was until I went to pick him up. In 15 years of rockchuck hunting he is the biggest I've ever shot. The produce scale at Albertson's put him at 14#. The one behind him weighed 12#.
These two were a double shot at 300 yards with the same gun and load. One shot, two dead chucks. Another first for me.
Having a great season so far. I shot 50 on Saturday to bring my total to 230 for the year. How is everyone else's rockchuck season going??
