I went out this morning groundhog hunting and I missed two and shot one at 225 yards, I was using a .223 contender rifle with a 4x16 weaver scope my loads were H335 powder and 54 gr. custom bullets that I make, I call them JD bullets. I went to a 98 acre farm that I have hunted for years first but the original owner died and her kids sold it to a gas Co. and they don't allow hunting so that is more property lost to hunting that the gas companies have posted.
