    My mate shot a rabbit, 276 yards( laser ranged)
    I know its not all that far, but its a start with a shot out barrel and factory ammo.

    Winchester Model 70 Heavy Varmint
    Leupold 4.5-14x50 Vari-X
    Winchester Super X - .222 Remington

    Thought i would chuck a photo of a fox in too

    Enjoy!

    Just being a dink here but......

    I don't think the rabbit shot should count. Per sniper hide rules you should have put at least 5 shots into it for it to be recorded/posted/discussed., etc.:D:D

    Good shootin'!

    Tell your mate "nice shot" dangaff, My shooting mate has the Win HVB in 222 as well as one in 243. Bloody nice rifles and a super accurate round. I am from Wang just up the Hume a bit more from you. Plenty of bunnies around at the moment. Hopefully the Mixo and Calicee stay away and we can continue to shoot over the spring/summer. Top shot.
