P-dogs

Hey 1 Mile;
Went out and slaughtered a few p-dogs Sat. Cool weather but no rain.
Shot one at 650 and one at 550. We had a 5-7 mph breeze. Needed a good day. Hope to shoot with you again soon.

    I got back yesterday from the Cimarron Grasslands in SW Kansas. Fewer dog towns than in years past, and not a lot of dogs. But enough to keep me interested. Made some 400 yard shots with my .22-250, but mirage (98 degrees in p.m.) and winds (20-30mph) didn't make it easy. Out past 250 yards I missed a lot more than I hit. Still hard to beat the fun factor.

    My .22-250 wears a Bushnell 10X tactical scope and the .223 is topped with a Clearidge 4.5-22 power scope. I like the better clarity and higher magnification of the Clearidge. Need a different scope for the .22-250.

    Should be going out this weekend. Loaded up a few hunderd rounds. I'm having to work a different bullet for my 22-250 AI. Since the bullet "crisis" they stopped making my 52gr A-max, Going to the 53v-max. Better bc. and the load is the same. Trial time. Still should be just under 4000fps. I have the VX3 Varmint Hunter on mine. Good shooting

    I've been out West, to The grasslands a couple years ago. I'm not going back! I was not impressed for several reasons. Cattle everywhere, High winds 20+ MPH, few dogs and very few closer than 300 yards. I believer they have been over hunted. Maybe the high prices of ammo will give them a year to make a come back. Oh yea, crappy camp ground also. Nothing not even shade. I'd pay $150 all day somewhere else and have tons more dogs to shoot at.

    Dogs everywhere, pups coming out to be introd to a 22lr. When they got tired {dead} their cousins came to see what was on the menu. Lots of red mist. After that, the Ackley spattered fur balls with a double at 658yds. Well, two days of that and I have to reload for the next time. Nothing like Shooting p-dogs out west.
