17hm2 does it again
 
40 degrees with a light 10mph wind here in ND. Sun came out so I took a drive to see if any gophers were out. Ended up taking 13. The ol CZ 455 did its job.

I know someone who would be jealous.

What was average distance?

nodak 03-27-2021 08:53 AM

In typical gopher fashion they ranged from 45yrd to 132yrd. At the 132 shot I had to give 1 dog for a full value wind.

nodak 04-02-2021 09:57 PM

Range from 20-130yards and now up to 40

:bthumb: Keep up the good work.

Thanks for sharing. Love the hm2 round myself.

Another 43 yesterday. Pretty fun day.

What brand ammo were you using?

nodak 04-08-2021 09:30 PM

Started with eley and then Hornady. Both 17gr. I like Eley better. Smells so so good.:D

nodak 05-14-2021 10:35 PM

Switched over to my VQ 10/22 convert and took another 43 tonight. Up to 201 now. Was put on to two new honey holes also today. :bthumb:

Numbers are low this year with a full on drought here. Actually funnier watching the gophers running in the field. They leave a dust trail a foot or two behind me it's so dry.

You would think as long as the hm2 and .17hmr have been around, the ammo manufacturers could solve the problem of split cases.

rustic bob 05-15-2021 04:34 PM

Sorry wrong thread, meant to put this in the one using the nail to extract split cases.

nodak 05-16-2021 12:28 AM

No worries Bob.

nodak 05-16-2021 12:30 AM

The new honey hole worked out well this evening. Almost another 70 down.

Fun fact about my VQ conversion. Ran 190 rnds through without issue and never cleaned it.

nodak 05-17-2021 10:57 PM

Tagged another 80 some ground squirrels yesterday. The VQ 17hm2 was put to work and did not disappoint. Even took 8 or 10 out between 100 and 200

nodak 05-18-2021 10:13 PM

Clocked another bunch today. YTD total is 398. Would a had over 400 but my VQ bolt had other ideas. I'll start a new thread for that item when I get my info in order.

nodak 06-10-2021 03:48 PM

Been using the CZ again and am up to 653 taken this year. This farmer has a serious problem. They are getting wiser though and keeping there distance. I may bring out my BMag next time.

What part of North Dakota do you live in? I live in Williston and go every chance I get when Im not out on the oil pads. Can always use another shooting buddy. One of the largest towns I love to go to has no cell service. So I cant go alone.

nodak 08-22-2021 09:32 PM

I work out of the White Earth Valley areaon a 8&6 schedule. Starting to get harder finding em now that the grass has actually grown. My total for the year is up to 1590 something. Not to shabby.
