The most spectacular casual shot I ever saw was with a 22-250. My neighbor growing up was working on a little addition on his house and I had volunteered to lend a hand one Saturday. It was an overcast day and about mid morning we kept hearing a crow caw off in the distance. Crows were our P dawgs, so Rick grabbed his Remington 700BDL varmint 22-250 and set it outside in a place he could get to it quickly. This crow made racket for at least 15 minutes before we finally spotted him. It took 7 power binos to make him out. With the naked eye, if you knew exactly where it was, you could see a speck of black. We laughed it off as too far but ol Rick finally said it's just a bullet and grabbed the rifle. All he had was the 2x4 corner of the addition to brace off . We made a completely uneducated guess that the bird was 400yds. Rick knew he had 16" of drop at 400 with how he had it sighted in. He laid that rifle across his wrist as he held the 2×4, estimated a hold over and touched one off as I looked on with the binos. After a split second of hang time, I saw the black puff of the crow exploding as the aggravating cawwing came to a sudden stop. That instilled a respect for that little round that never went away. Good times !
