I haven't posted in the Varmit section before but I've been lurking. Thought I'd take the plunge and post a few pics. Nothing special here, but I've learned to shoot them very accurately.
Sorry for the low quality photo, didn't realize the gun would be in the shadow.
This is a 418 yard groundhog (VA) shot with my Encore 25-06 topped with a 6-18 Leupold. This gun shoots ragged holes with both 75gr VMAX's and 100 BT's. This groundhog was shot with a 100gr BT. Bang...POP...red mist! The past few groundhogs I shot with the 75's had only entrance holes. Bullet turns insides to mush with just a few drops of blood trickling from entrance.
I also carry this .221 Fireball contender mounted with 2-8 weaver pushing 55gr VMAX 2550fps. This gun prints 3/8" @100 on a regular basis. This is for "when the situation presents itself, smack it with the fireball". This groundhog wasn't the biggest, making it a challenge for a 10" barrel. Rangefinder displayed 184 yards. Bullet had slowed down a bit so it wasn't very explosive, but it landed where I wanted!
Haven't shot the fireball lately but I did fire 16 rounds through the 357 Herrett this evening in 20-30mph winds to see its "wind-bucking" abilities at 200. Love shooting the T/C's!
