My friend said he shot a prairie dog at 300 yards with a 223. I said how would you even see it with some of the brush. What do you think.

300 yards is a chip shot if the wind is low. Most of our shooting occurs between 3-400 yards.

I agree. Most of the PD shoots we go to start at 275 and run out to 525 yards.

I don't have p-dogs but routinely make that shot in much less than minute of prairie dog with a 223.

Thats not that hard of a shot in decent conditions, with a 223 in great conditions 800 yard shots arent out of the question if the shooter and gun are up to the task.

He said the wind was blowing 50 Mph and it was off hand he said he held right on target in 50 Mph wind.
