    I wouldn't even try the .17 out 250 yds, I'd take my .204 and be done with it. Now out to 150 yds, the .17 would be fun, Looking for a .17 Hornet...

    Shooting prairie dogs at 250 yards from a good rest with a .204 Ruger is a chip shot.

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    Yes
    The p-dogs we shoot in eastern Colorado must be dummer than the average p-dog because we knock em down @ 75 yds with .17 hmr's quite a bit

    You must shoot some towns that don't get a lot of pressure. I've shot quite a few between Ordway and Eads, and it's rare to get that close on a consistent basis. There's also a big town south of Hwy 50 between Pueblo and Canon City. A 200 yard shot in that town is a close shot.

    Maybe I need to go shooting with you...

    Oh, and welcome to the forum.
