    Nothing better than a great shooting rifle and a field of chucks. Good job and nice shooting.

    Sheesh!! Your coyotes must be on an hunger strike. The chucks are all but GONE in Indiana. I sure miss those days. Glad you had an enjoyable day. I'm jealous.

    Hi there are you running lapua brass and who made the reamer , might just run laupua and fire form, instead of norma brass cheers Lee. I have emailed ptg twice and no reply as off yet, might be busy.

    Wow - that's great shooting - the kind I can only dream about.

    Shooting off my shooting cross sticks with my 223 Rem's I'm limited in skill to about 250 yards give or take. But most of the farm where I hunt don't offer a lot of shots beyond 300 yards due to the roll of the terrain.

    That's a very nice farm that you hunt on, I bet its just nice to sit there and enjoy the scenery. How many groundhogs have you shot this year so far?
