    Most of my life I've been unable to afford really nice scopes (or very many nice rifles for that matter). But I've come to the conclusion that, for the important ones at least, there is no avoiding the need for top of the line glass.

    I might look into suppressing the rifle later. Any drop in noise level decreases the range at which the prairie rats ignore the sound and absorb a round.

    I use it for fun, and to control tree rats that breed out of control in my pecan and oak trees.

This rifle shoots MOA with bulk steel-case russian ammo. How can you NOT love that? I feel that with a little work on loads I will be making ragged hole groups regularly.

    Ya gotta start feeding them dogs better.

    Except for the "left hand" That is one of the rifles I would get for such a purpose. That is if I don't get a Remington. The .223 does the job without costing an arm and a leg to shoot. The barrel last longer than with the faster rounds too. I live about an hour from the Leupold factory so there is no point in getting any other scope. I see a lot of fun in your future and I am a bit jealous.

    Prairie Dogs; thinner and thinner and thinner...



    Savage 12 VLPSS left-handed, .223 blind magazine. I don't know how tight she will go, but absent the wind, I didn't miss at 300 yards much. Next week she gets to wear her new Leupold scope-silver finish to match the stainless steel.
