I prefer the copter view where they take out desert rats rather than prairie dogs.

Thats one of the few things I really miss about Western Ks!

Somewhere around here I have a video clip of one I sent exploding upwards 6' in the air.

Prairie dog hunting is great fun. I just bought a Ruger .204 which shoots the fastest bullet available. My brother came in from Germany the other day, he used to be a sniper in the Marine Corps. He sighted my rifle in for me and we were blowing them up at 300 yards. Killed 32 dogs and a 20 pack in about 3 hours. Great Fun!!!!

What kind of shells are they using there? I'm suprised at how it completely hollows a few of thos prarie dogs out. One thing is for sure, they aren't feeling a thing...

Taco, I don't know what they are using but my .204 does the same thing to them. I shoot a 32 grain bullett. I also have a .220 swift I want to try on them but haven't done so yet. I shot a few with a 22 Hornet and it didn't have that kind of effect. So I assume it's something with a high speed bullett. Could be a 22-250 but dont know.

32 dogs? Is that all? Maybe the 20 pack was affecting your aim a bit then? :)

Between my dad and I, on the 6 square mile dog town that I used to hunt, we'd leave many, many more than that every day.

I have a pair of 22-250's that will stretch 4-500 yards when the day is calm and the dogs are patient enough to keep standing until you get the range figured out. Also had a TC Contender that I switched from 222 Rem carbine and 22 Hornet pistol for close work. There's not too many things more frustrating than having the barrel is so hot that you have to wait for it to cool off while dogs stand there barking at you. That's why you need more than one firearm!

What gave you that idea? I'm a conservationist. Since moving down here I have started a campaign to re-introduce Prairie Dogs into the area. To this point however, I have failed to find a landowner that will allow me to start a colony.

I need to go get another rifle. I'm thinking something I can smoke these little bastages with, yet big enough for my son to drop a deer. I'm thinking about a 22-250 myself.

In my 22-250 I shoot a 55 gr bullet that moves a bit faster than 3,600 feet per second. The bullet typically moves fast enough that it explodes on impact. In fact, if I get two dogs lined up, there is a good chance that the bullet will explode with the first to the point that the second dog goes untouched.

Greg, I would suggest looking into a 257 Roberts Ackley Improved. I finished my build last year in time for deer season. Ballistics are almost identical to my 22-250 right now and I could drop to a lighter bullet for varmits and it would shoot even flatter. Only problem is that after a hundred rounds, the shoulder would start to get a bit tired. The .257 would allow you a bullet wait up to around 115-120 grains which does a decent job on deer.

Mike, that's a good idea, that gun didn't even come to mind until you posted this. I just picked up an new AK-47 from a buddy of mine that had bought 10 several years ago, but I don't think Jr needs so be sporting something like that around the woods. :) The clips I have for that thing would make it illegal for hunting as well. I am going to have to look into that 257 ASAP. Thanks for the advise!

I built mine from a Mauser '98 action. Pretty easy job if you have someone that can ream the barrel chamber for you. From what I've read of your posts, you could probably do it yourself, but buying the chamber reamer and guages can get a bit expensive. You can find a good variety of Mauser building parts from www.midwayusa.com (http://www.midwayusa.com).

Also, the accuracy from a bolt action mauser would be far superior to anything like the AK-47 and the bolt action would help him to make the first shot count.


One more thing, there is very little recoil so he would be much less likely to develop a flinch.
