Half an hour this morning (GRAPHIC)

Recommended Posts

As it was nice took the .22 out, using cci mini mags got these four around the 60yds mark, all headshots within 15 minutes. 

As I took the first photo and was about ready to pack up, one of their friends popped it's head out wanting to play, around the 40yds mark, I was happy to oblige. 

The difference in damage at 20yds difference is explosive.

The mini mags are still shifting some at 40 yards, I use them myself, I find the rws high velocity hp’s can cause a lot of damage, probably more so than mini mags. Used to get a lot of that with Winchester xpediters, they were explosive for a .22 rimfire bullet. Made a mess of some squirrels and rabbits with them.

Mates Thai wife took the lot, he never even gets a look in. Anything not eaten goes to the dogs so no waste, even big fatties I save in the freezer for me and curry them.

I was using subs, but my rfd gave me a deal so tried them, honestly they do the job well, though make a crack even with the mod. 60yds is my limit really .22 sub but then I have the .17hmr option, just 22's are a quarter of the price.

Indeed they are Gav. I use .22 probably 20 times more than .17hmr. I use .22 hornet more than .17hmr also, with the price of hmr ammo being almost as much as ppu.22 hornet, and with the option to reload its leaving hmr in the cabinet. I can use rws high velocity .22 out to 100 yards as they’re very accurate in my Anschutz.

      Had a little mooch last night around the stables for an hour or so.
      No soon as load the CZ I see my first target for the night, only been there 5 minutes.
      It caught sight of me and bounced off, I thought it would be well gone, but oh no.
      Popped my head around the side of the stable and there it was, sat perfectly up right no more than 20 yards away.
      I got my self positioned to shoot through the fence and then let the trigger finger go.
      Next thing thud, nice little head shot😉😊

      Thought I’d have an hour or so up the stables tonight, glad I did.
      Just creeping towards the stable and spotted my first of the night on the path.
      As I crept up he started heading towards the paddock, I crept under the fence and there he was sitting nicely minding his own business munching and then........... bang one down.
      Just as I scanned the field there was number two, a good 75 yards and again...... bang, down goes number 2.
      Two in 10 minutes of arriving.
      Thought I’d  look Over the fence through the trees and number 3 pops it’s head up, 60-70 yards and with a squeeze of the trigger..... bang, a nice little hat trick for the evening. Happy days!!😊

      Well now ,took my self and my new tool to the farm and unloaded in a likely spot .Before even unpacking saw a white butt in the distance ,quick load and rest on the gate 1 down first 5 minutes wow impressed myself .Set up and worked out how to get in  of course the rifle is longer than the hide but a bit of draped camnet sorted this, minor issue .Quick scan and a buck was about 70yds away having a play time for number 2 .By dark oclock 4 shot but only 2 worth bringing back clean of mixxy .This location has 3 warrens and seems like 2 are clear ,happy with the hide yes ,could do with with a shorter barrel  but will do for  pigeons and  for my perm as its tree lined but open fields apart from the plantation .
      And the chair is sturdy which is good for a large gentleman such as myself

      Out last night for a mooch around and not a thing to be seen😞
      Got the shock of my life though, walking toward the stables then hey presto the 4 horses came right at me.
      Looking at me very curiously as they walked past stood in the top paddock, field that I wanted to be in.
      With a little gentle persuasion, lots of squeaking of the lip and holding my hand out as to say I mean no harm, got them into the bottom field and closed the gate till I was done.
      They must have thought who’s this nutter 😂
      After all my efforts not a bloody thing!! Probably all the lip squeaking lol. 
      Nice walk and some peace and quiet so not all bad😊
