I've rolled a few prairie dogs past 300 yards and even have a varafied kill @ 325 <u>BUT</u> I quit trying as there where just too many crawler past 150 yards.The 20 grain kill a little better than the 17 grain BTs but not enough IMHO to shoot past 150yards....The 223/204 works better past 150 yards and cost about the same per round.

My longest confirmed is on a fox at 266 yd. One shot through the neck (front shoulder was aiming point) with a complete pass through. Dead on the spot. Bullet was a factory Hornady 17gr V-Max. I am repeatedly amazed with this little wonder.
+1 on what Mach V said . I did'nt like the results on Pdogs with the Vmax much beyond 125 Yards . Especially if they were BIG Pdogs ...too many crawlers . I found a Ranch with a lot of mounds close to the house and that field was loaded with tons of old machinery . Kind of fun to sneak around all that stuff using it for a solid rest and popping Pdogs at under 125 yards . Quiet too !
