    Geez

    That's not a varmint, that's a rabbit. They are good to eat. At least you got the bullet placement right. Nice shot

    In some places rabbits are varmint. When they are at the top of their cycle and the preditors can't keep up they become varmint. When I was about 15 we had an explosion in the rabbit population and when out hunting you could shoot one every 5 min. hour after hour.

    Guys,
    We dont have Chucks, P/dogs etc, in Britain so rabbits are our varmints. Certain parts hold huge ammounts of rabbits and great sport can be had although long range is not usually an option.

    looks a nice bit of kit
    have you got more pics of her
    you can have a real good time on old thumper & good for the pot.

    you need to push her a bit and get some crow, rook, or magpie on the deck. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Rabbit?

    All I see is a very nice Piece of hardware ... A Cooper topped off with what looks like to be a 6.5-20 Lupi - I know you guys have to pay with a pound of flesh to get this stuff over there.


    Congrats!

    Your bullet choice is all wrong /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif You might try loading up some 55 grain 6mm for sub 300 meter shooting at Varmints
