bohunr and I helped a farmer out today.

Sat in one spot for 180 degrees of groundhog action..from close and out to about 220(i think) ....don't think we went over 10 minutes without seeing one. We used .223s and a 22LR(only 1 killed)

Aint been yet. Beans almost too tall.
.243 not zeroed ( new scope ). .22-250 needs checked. .219 is a bit high.

Windy every weekend or not feeling well, havent been able to get back to the range and get things situated.

Allergy season slams me anymore.

Got a Ruger #3 that was rebarreled 24" in .219 D wasp. Swapped to #1 wood and finally topped w an M8 10X.

Half incher at 100 w 50gr Nosler BT but is a bit high. Shot other stuff and got too punchy to go back and finish dialing the oddball in.

308 in a T shirt LOL

Too hot and too tired to hit the range today. This was a week or two back (work so much it all seems the same).

Found an old Bushnell Sentry Spotting scope, paint chipped. Redid it w patio furniture paint LOL, looks good at 15 ft.
Need a tripod for it, and to video junk for Youtube.

I mention this as even w a Shoot n See, 10X at 100 aint all that great and 25X might be mo betta. :)

I have beyond had it with this rain. Over 2 weeks now with thunderstorms daily. 2 weeks of non stop rain, power outages, storm damage. Enough is enough.
