    I took my Savage 22-250,Savage .223 and my Bushy AR to the p-dog town the other day. I must say, my shooting even impressed me! Good thing i took the newer pickup with air conditioning to help keep the barrels cool cause I shot much more than i had planned. Shooting into the wind keeps the varmints from being as shy and running to their holes. This is one of the many 2 and 3 kills at one hole.

    A bit of overkill, wouldn't you say? Having only seen p'dogs during basic training at Fort Sill, OK, I don't know much about them.

    Are they considered a varmint and a nuisance? What do you do with the carcasses, leave them for the buzzards?

    YES. They make holes...livestock step in the holes...livestock break their leg...it's easier to shoot p-dogs than your own cows.

    Good shooting.

    What load were you using for the .223? What range?

    Woops! The range was from 100 yards to around 300 and a few farther. Shooting into the wind helps keep the noise from the varmints.

    Not really an overkill, just good shot placement! 40, 55 and 52gr bullets.

    I need to double check, but that sounds about like what I'm loading with 8208 and 55g V-max.

    I'm using Lapua brass for the bolt 223's and 28.5 just about fills the cases. 2.280 OAL. 25g of 8208 for the AR with 55g v-max and 35.0g of 8208 and 52g a-max for the 22-250.
