- Orofino, Idaho
I shoot a small ground squirrel we call "Whistle Pigs" in Southern Idaho. I usually pick up 17HMR around $10 a box of 50 rounds on sale. That's 20 cents a round which I can't come close to reloading my. 223 for. I put a Vortex G-2 on my. 17 and have fun hitting them out to 300 yards with some luck. It gets me practicing for long range shooting with my larger caliber rifles. Fun with no kick out of it!
