Great stories. Sounds like luck was the key factor in most of them. But my thought is, nothing ventured, nothing gained. I have too many "lucky" shots to count from shooting prairie dogs. Most of...

I have .22s, 17Mach2 and 17HMR and all of them will shoot under1" at 50yds. One of my 17HMRs and 2 of my .22s will shoot .5" groups. All 3 of my rimfire rifles can whack squirrel eyes at 50. Now...

The 17HMR is really good out to 125 yds and OK at 150 on prairie dogs. I shoot lots of them. But, beyond 125 yrads I rarely even attempt a shot. At best you have to lob one in and hope to hit them...
