I first shot prairie dogs with a 22 LR Rem slide action rifle in 1949. Over the years I have used various brands of rifles and varmint cartridges. This year I ll be using a Rem 700 LS 221 Fireball , Rem 700 Limited Ed 17 Fireball rifles w/Leupold 6-18X AO scopes and a Cooper 57 M LVT 17 HMR rifle w/ 4-16 X AO scope. I restocked the two Remington rifles with glass bedded Boyd Thumbhole Varmint stocks. Last week I shot the rifles off a bench rest to check my reloads and adjusted the sites a bit. I have a bunch of empty cases to reload this week . Next week I ll be after the p dogs ,darn I have to drive six mile to get to the first prairie dog town.
