Ernie-- how about a Ruger Charger? Work very well for prairie dogs past 100 yards?

Been thinking about getting one of the older ones. All wood stock instead of the new plastic ones.

Killed pd's out to about 350 yards with mine...They work fine.
22lr will teach a lot about wind

Paul, I seem to remember you hitting a few dogs in the 300-350 yard range while using the little Vartarg. I also remember a big grin on your face!!

It seems like I saw one once in the 22mag configuration. But can't be 100% on that. You would not gain anything trying to use a 22mag for longer shots. The 22 would get it done and if you learn to read the wind at 300+ yds then you really have set yourself apart.

Steve Garbe used to shoot his 22 at 300yds with Iron Sights.
For awhile he even taught people how to do it and how to read the wind. You doing this with a Pistol is way beyond the average IMHO. Way to go !

You got that right Ernie! Every time I take the Vartarg out it gets passed around. Mostly I loose it to Lisa for the day. So I'm gathering parts to build another one for her. Super economical to load. A blast to shoot. With the break on the front you can see impact past 75 yards. And with little to no wind, it is deadly on vermin out to 400 plus. At Wyshot last year Lisa and I both recorded hits past that with it.
Paul. You need to build one. You won't regret it!
This is a pick of my VT and a dog shot just over 250 yards by Lisa.
Paul had several past that using that little gun. Followed by lots and lots of laughter!

I laughed more that week than I had in a long time. I made shots every day that I didn't think were possible with a pistol. Made a believer out of me for sure.
