Yep I consider it a perfect groundhog round for more poulated areas.
I had a massive groundhog problem when I moved back from NM. Little diggers running everywhere. At the same time I got my 17.

Out to 175 it's point and shoot, past that you have to know the exact range. Most of them are inside 200, had a few a hair past that . I have not missed one nor lost one yet over several years, so its made a huge dent in the poulation.

I'm on a farm. I really like how quiet it is. No boom at all, just a crack, and doesnt scare the animals.

I'd buy a 20 wsm so fast, I'd even buy a bmag in it.....

Would probably be inline just as fast in 22 wsm as well...
