Have some planned "trigger catharsis" For Thursday-Prairie Dogs

Ernie BishopErnie Bishop Senior MemberPosts: 7,972 Senior Member
Glenn and I plan to do some doggin tomorrow, if our schedules don't fall apart.
I am going to take my 20 BR XP-100 and my 223 Remington HSP.
Both specialty pistols have 15" barrels.  The 20 BR has a 8T McGowen, and the HSP has a 7-T H-S Precision barrel, since H-S made the complete pistol.
55 grain Berger for the 20 cal and the 77 TMK for the 223.
I really want to take a dog over a grand with this 223 Remington specialty pistol.
Conditions will play a big part.
Glenn will be shooting his 22 Creed XP-100 with 88 grain ELD-M's

    No wind, or at least consistent wind....may they always be in your favor! Have fun!

    Me too...I will spend more time spotting for Glenn, and let him attain some personal bests for distance and the spotting scope views of "pink mist" as that 22 Creed is going to be impressive under 400 yards.

    I enjoyed it.
    Making the 1K+ pd hit with the 223 HSP is something I know I can do with good conditions.
    If it doesn't happen, I am fine with that too.
    It has just been on my "to do list," and I haven't checked it off to date.
    I am more concerned tomorrow about Glenn and his goals-Spotting is fun when pd shooting!

    Did go 6/6 at 200yrds and 5/6 for moving targets at 300 yards this evening, though. It’s been awhile since I’ve shot movers.
