Who says you can't shoot a 20 cal at 1k?
 
Here is a buddy from another forum. 1,032 yard kill with a 20br custom build on a duel port SAVAGE.

It's impressive enough that he could see it at that distance :eek:

What's the power on that scope, you know Tango?

It is either a 5-22 or the 12-42x Nightforce.

Here is a link to the thread there.

Very impressive.

That just looks like sheer fun.

Did he take that critter on the first shot?

(What is it, BTW?)

Not sure but I do believe it was not walked in.

Animal is a Prairie Dog.

They board has a yearly meet where a bunch of them go and shoot P dogs for a week each spring.

Reach out... Reach out and touch someone.

Wow! :eek:
That should be some kind of a record.

(I got a chuckle out of the Kleenex or handkerchief) :)

Sonny- P Dogs carry fleas. Fleas that sometimes carry bubonic plague. Remember the Black Death that killed most of Europe? We still have a few cases a year in CO/ UT. I would not pick the filthy little buggers up with rubber gloves on.

Oh yeah...
Forgot about that. Thanks! :o
Out here we have Ground Squirrels. Same thing about the fleas.
Thank you for the reminder.
