It is late spring - early summer here in New Zealand and the young rabbits are all out and about without a care in the world. They should have though, as last week a friend and I took our 20 VarTarg's ( mine on a Rem XR 100, his on a Brno Fox) and in a couple of hours in the hills got 54 before heading out for the rest of the day on goats. Both our Vartargs shoot the 35gn Berger real well. I put 19.2gn H4198 over a WSR and get 3735 with 1/4in groups ( actually a best of .084 but I expect in the .2's) on paper, but more importantly kills out to 316 meters so far, although that was on an adult rabbit as the young are only about half size and small targets out past 250yds, especially as there is varying wind and target directions as they are not in warrens, but scattered all over the hills, which are quite steep and one shot may be uphill, while the next one may be below you, so getting comfortable on the slope for precission shooting can be a chalenge. Did I mention that it is more fun than you could shake a stick at though. Anyone else shooting a VarTarg?
