FA Mdl. 97 .32 H&R Mag.

Description: Now THIS is a great sidearm for groundhog hunting! It's equipped with a 7 1/2" barrel, an ISGW Silhouette rear sight and one of my undercut patridges on the front. Black micarta grips. I like to use an 85 gr. XTP @ 1200 fps for groundhogs.

Does your load anchor them pretty quick?I 've thought about getting a revolver in .32 mag. for varmints.

It works fine, although I've only shot groundhogs with it out to about 40 yards. I consider the .32 H&R pretty light, thus never considered scoping it for hunting at longer distances. That load will sure blow up a head for a 25 yd. headshot, though!

I bet one of the smaller red-dot sites would work for quick shots.
