Day's Squirrel Shot

9 posts in this topic

Had a nice squirrel shot today. 90 yds, held with the first MilDot and whacko. Hit a few others but, they weren't the clean kill that the first one was. Have to work on shot placement.

Oh wow...!! 90 yards...!!! Great shot....my longest is 70 yards (Umarex 850 .177). Been practicing getting dope to get one at 80....A friend talked me into trying a shot on a squirrel lasered at 100 yards with my Disco.....very slight breeze from right to left...missed him by 2"...

Great shooting Gary. That can be a long ways when your ammo is not only fighting but powered by the wind. ;)

If you're within 2" just keep trying & you'll get the combination right. One of my many theories is that to shoot long you have to practice long. :D I could have had three times as many shots if I'd tried all those that were hanging out between 150 & 200 yds. ;) Tried a couple of those 150 yarders and got within 12".SJ, thanks for the comment. I was checking out the ballistics program, Chairgun 2, to get an idea of what holdover to use.

The Eun Jin Sumatra 2500-500 rifle paired with a Simmons Whitetail Classic 6.5-20X 50MM Mil Dot scope. Have been using the Eun Jin Dome 28 gr pellet. It seems that the grouping with that pellet is not what I want at 100 yds.
