Long range groundhog rifles

What rifle(rifles) are you going to use for long range groundhogs this year? I'm going to use my 22x47 Lapua for long range and for the shorter stuff I am going to use a .17 Rem.

Re: Long range groundhog rifles

At the urging of a lot of friends I am going to try my best to use 1 gun for competition and hunting all year. For me this will be really hard since I usually sell or trade guns once a month lol.
BAT 300WSM for both this year!

300WSM, Blake, a man after my own heart!

I'll be using a 243 for most hog hunting, if we decide to stretch it out a bit I may have to try the new Dasher.

Re: Long range groundhog rifles

I like my 6BR, 30BR and
Dasher. Nothin wrong with the 6.5-284 or the Creedmore.

Re: Long range groundhog rifles

I will use my 243 loaded with 85 grain sierra HPBT game kings. They tested very well at the range so i want to try them on hogs. I have my scope dialed in to 600yds. Not the longest range but it works for me

Re: Long range groundhog rifles

I'm using a 6x47 Lapua shooting 115 Bergers. It has proven its self on more than 1 occasion out to 1100 yards.

Re: Long range groundhog rifles

6Br. What's not to love? Extremely low recoil, great accuracy, wack em out to and over 1k.

Your freedom to be you, includes my freedom to be free from you.
