    I didnt plan on hunting, but after confirming that my Savage was zero'd, I decided to take a little walk and get the rifle her first kill. I bought this gun about 5 years ago specifically for rock chucks, but I had never gotten one with it because I was in San Diego.

    Wind picked up to about 10-12mph as soon as I started hunting, and it started raining right as i was finishing up. Ended up with 6 chucks in about 2 hours. Not bad for an overcast windy day.

    The rifle is a 24" 1:7 twist, so I was shooting Black Hills 68gr MHP- VERY impressed with the performance. I would say they're even more devastating than the 55gr V-max I've been shooting in my AR.

    had an awesome little perch for the first 2 kills.

    Somehow managed to completely hollow out his skull, leaving only a mask. Arrow points to where I was - 196 yards.

    can you tell where I got him?

    It's a .223, it looks bigger on camera ;) I've taken chucks out to 376yd in this area with my AR, but the typical shots are 160-225. No need for anything bigger.

    Im in Idaho BTW, thanks.

    Yea, a few, but I've only seen one buck in 12 years. not worth the hunt. There's a lot of traffic (off-road), so there are literally probably only 8 deer in that area. :rofl:

    every time I see the group, it's the same 8.... :shithappens:

    There's much better spots, but its fun for chucks.

    I miss the mother land. :-(
    Looks like you are around the snake river canyon area?
    We used to blast chucks with anything from .22s to my 7MM. :-)
    I grew up in the Jerome, Twin Falls area.
