What is s. rifle ?

I am planning on using two different rifles on my first Shawnee hunt this year..

a ) Winchester model 75-1946 year model with the original Lyman 10 x targetspot scope

b) Winchester 52 sporter ( reproduction) heavy barrel with a 4x12 bushnell scope..

I am looking forward to meeting all of the rimfirecentral friends this year!! :eek:

Last year my first choice was an Anschutz 164 Sporter .22 with an old 6X AO Leupold scope. After the squirrels got on the ground later in the season I hunted with a CZ American HM2 with a 4-12 VXII.
Our season just started today and I've got a couple of new rifles, so that's all subject to change.
I think this one's gonna see some action early in the season. It's a 1416D HB Anschutz with a 4-12 VXII on it right now. I've swapped the rings for a set of Warnes since the picture was taken.

Sorry, no pic, but I use a Savage 17 Heavy, .17HMR with Basix sear kit installed, glassed with BSA 6X-24X illuminated mildot recticles, and a good leather sling. I find the sling is a must have for the heavy rifle, for squirrel hunting.

Kimber M-82 .22 long rifle with 4x Nikon currently, hopefully a 2-7x28mm Leupold before long; and a CZ 452 American .17M2 topped with a Burris Compact AO 4-12x32mm. Some pictures of both are floating around the CZ and Kimber forum sections. :t

I use cz 452's, one is a silhouette with a bushnell 4-12, and i got a trainer that has a simmons .22 mag 3-9 on it that i will take out to see how it does. Also the rem 870 express 12 guage is a very good squirrel gun for early season to get up into the trees, and shoot them off of branches.

My current squirrel rifle is a ...

Mossberg model 350. 24" bbl with a 3x9 steel tube Weaver with the adj objective lense in Weaver rings, although it might have some serious competition this year as I have relined a 340 Mossberg (a clip fed bolt gun) to 17 Mach2 and I am waiting for it to return from being reblued. The 340 will also have a 3x9 w/AO Weaver in BKL rings. Initial accuracy testing points to a 100 yard capable squirrel rifle. :D Should be a very interesting season this year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! God Bless, Frank.
