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.
