Thursday afternoon there was prairie dog mayhem and carnage in a short period of time. 3 dogs with the 357 FR (H-110 and 158 Nosler's) and one with Chris Rhodes customized S&W 44 Mag, and then around 50 with my 6x47 XP-100/70 Nosler NBT's.
I killed that small prairie dog standing, offhand, with no artificial support, at 125 yards with Chris's S&W Model 29DX that both Chris and Ken Kelly has done work on.
I think the longest shot with my Franken-Ruger was around 150 yards or so. I kind of sighted in the Franken-Ruger while I was shooting at prairie dogs.
The longer shots I made with my XP were around 300 yards or maybe a little bit further than that, but nothing longer than 350 yards. This was all close range killing shooting off the bog Gear-with the PSR top. Once I put down the revolvers, I knocked off those 50ish pd?s in less than 2 hours with the XP from the seated position.
It has been awhile since I have done close range pd's with my XP's. Had a great time. Chris was killing stuff with the S&W 44 Mag, His SA 22lr revolver (iron sights), and his Dominator in 357 Bains and Davis. Chris is absolutely deadly with his Dominator!
We didn't even start to gather up all of the dogs for pics.

I wasn't pleased with my shooting at 50yds today. Charles
Everyone has off days. When I was doing load development with the 158 Swifts, I shot two shots at 100 yards (close to touching), then moved to another aiming point, shot two more shots, and they were almost touching too. Chris was making the comments that I was shooting all over the place. I thought I was shooting terrible, till I actually saw the target and realized what I did...Kind of funny now. Feels weird using a pistol scope though
