    Its windy here in ND too, montana blows and minnesota sucks.:Dgun) That 165 grain sgk will drop any whitetail in its tracks, sgk's are my 2nd favorite deer bullet.

    The 52 grain speer hp flat base from a 22-250 turns prarie dogs into 3 chunks and disperses them evenly. :Dgun)

    it is tons of fun, my longest kill is 414 yards, got 2 in a row :cool:.
    You will have plenty of fun and do a lot of shooting if the pups are out. They are pretty stupid.

    im going with a friend who goes all the time, he is the one who built that .308 and got me into hand loading. his best shot was 700yds on one but like he said it was luck. :)
