Inspection of a 126 yard lasered squirrel shot



Log in to see fewer ads
Cci vmax 17 grainer. Behind the shoulder went plum through. Far above average size grey squirrel in a mulberry tree. Season is open in Tn. 10x on the mag nightforce 2.5x10 used with ihr reticle. Shot off of bipod with me holding the rear of gun. Love this hm2 lilja barrel. Dialed up 1.5 moa elevation before shooting. About 7 degrees elevation shot wise based on laser.

This winter should prove to be fun. Squirrel clear as a bell too in the scope.

Fun huh? That beats my 125 yd shot by a yard. Actually, I missed the first shot and got him on the 2nd. Aimed about an inch high, My Bushnell 4-16X came in real handy that day. Had another experience with 5 squirrels eating soy beans in a cut field, all between 90-100 yds. had a nice sturdy rest and killed 3 before they got wise...2 of the 3 were head shots. My Anschutz 1502 is a keeper.

The hm2 gets the work done.

Last few days on my mulberry stakeout for squirrels.
This lilja barreled CZ 455 with the excellent reticle ihr reticle nightforce scope at 10x mag- this clean reticle is super duper setup for this ammo. Light to no wind.

At distances of between 125-127 yards.
Total of 22 shots fired.
17 squirrels retrieved.
2 squirrels hit and got away.
3 clean misses it appears.

Some of these shots rushed a bit too cause a squirrel don’t sit still long in mulberry tree.

Squirrels are not mangled either by hm2 unlike using hmr.

This winter this hm2 round will be loads of fun with this rifle and scope on bushy tails. Will change my hunting strategy a bit.
No need to get close. Lol

4 (3) clean misses it appears. Turns out one shot at least not clean miss. Shot one this morning had been shot and scabbed over.

All shot out of same mulberry tree with me standing in same spot. Bipod up front and me in the back of gun. Bipod pod on my truck tool box.
