223 Ground Hog \" How Far \" Hi All I just wanted to get some reply's on Ground hog kills with a 223. I killed one at 450 yards last week with one shot to the head. I missed one yesterday twice at 570 yards. I thought I hit him on the 2nd shot but diddn't find him. The Bean are getting tall here in VA. The place i'm hunting I can see a mile. I'm getting about 3125 fps with a 50 gr V MAX bullet. I know the sky's the limit with a head shot but what about a body shot.
