Even at 80 yards, the pellet would blow right through most of them. For me and long range airgun shooting, I have to have either a mildot or christmas tree type reticle to make it work. I need those hard aimpoints to reference in order to be consistent in my hold. I thought that ground squirrels were fun to hunt with an airgun, and they are, but shooting prairie dogs with airguns is that much fun, only that much fun on steroids.
That pellet just slices right through them doesn't it. That mildot is sure working for you. I may have to change one of mine around to have a mildot on mine too. Great shooting those are some fun targets.

I hunt the dog towns on foot taking shots of opportunity, so I'm shooting from all points of the compass. During the day, depending on where the dogs are that I'm after, I can have it coming from any direction. It is a challenge to dope the wind, but where I was hunting there were so many targets, I got a pretty good feel for it relatively quickly.
Good shooting...is the wind 90 degrees to you or .....??? Prevailing in some areas I hunt are 12-15 mph...not a big deal out to 40 yards...but 60-75 yards would be a real challenge...
