    We'd need a snow shovel Boyd. A really big one. And a heated tent (it's like 4° right now). LOL. The groundhogs here aren't as numerous as in much of PA. I know a guy that lives in Shippensburg that usually gets in excess of 100 a year. He's not into long range shooting though, what a shame.

    Yep, they make wonderful targets Baldeagle. Tough to measure a 5 shot group though !!!!

    Gettin' the itch really bad here in NE Ohio.
    Just got done moly coating some 140 AMAX for my .264 Win. Mag.

    Hell, I can't even stand to go to the range when it's this cold. If Phil doesn't predict the right way, I may just make the three hour drive over to Punxy and clean his ears out with one of those moly coated AMAXes.
