Had the day off so I decided to go out to the mountains and do some squirrel hunting. The weather was perfect and everything was so green with a light cool breeze. I had two of my longest kills ever at 186 yards and a near miss at 204 yards with my FX Impact .30 cal. I was laying down shooting towards the rock just to the right of the trees on the other side of the field in the first pic which was 186 yards. The second pic is from the rock looking back at the large tree I was laying under.
About 25 yards to the right of the 186 yard rock and father away was the one I missed 3 times at 204 yards. I didn't realize that it was a lot windier down at the 204 yard rock until I walked down there to see. I did manage to do a 3" 3 shot group at 204 yards though as the pellets exploded on the rock when I missed the squirrel, maybe next time I will break the 200 yard kill mark for me.
One thing that was crazy was at those ranges was that fact that after you pulled the trigger there was a pause, then the squirrel flipped into the air, landed on the rock then you heard the pop from the pellet hitting it.
I have my scope zeroed in at 25 yards so to make these shots I had to set my scope to 10x and use 6.5 mil dots hold over for 186 yard shot and 8 mil dots holdover for the 204 yard shot. I will say a squirrel at those distances with 10x looking like a grain of rice.....lol
