Re: best groundhog cartridge
My brother has a 22-250, in the same exact rifle as my 204. Anything hit inside 300 yards, and you couldn't tell the difference just by looking at the hog(they're both gonna be messy). After 400 yards the 22-250 packs more punch simply becasue of the heavier bullets availible. I never said I needed a 25-06, Tom. I just like blasting stuff with mine. I reload, so cost isn't a huge factor for me. Plus, with the 25, I get less wind drift than with my .204. Each has it's spot. If I need to go quiet, I'll take a .22 mag. It'll kill em just as dead to 200 yds. I'm still stickin' with my 204. I can get 45 gr pills and a scope with more adjustment than I currently have if I would ever need to.
I think I'm an alright guy, I think I'm alright
