Prairie dogs are not considerd small game. therfore there are no rules as to the li its on weapons used to Vape them.. If it were fair I mean really if it were fair. you wouldnt be able to use anything bigger than a 22lr. shooting a Prairie dog with a 243 or 220 swift is like shooting a deer with a 20 mm or 25 mm so there are really no limits on the weapon. We have taken them on occasion in Utah and Co. and Wy. but when you hit them you cant tell because the bullet strikes the mound behind them and sends a cloud of dust that blurres out any visual on it. besides it just doesnt give the flip factor...dont waste your money it wont give you the results yuo think it will.

DUDE. A .50 Cal for P Dogs??? How big is the X ring.

Shooting a P dog at 1000 yards is for the super ultra technically enhanced varminter. Usually, it consists of a highly accurized custom bolt rig with a handloaded custom caliber and some REALLY good glass. IHMO. I am speaking by no experience mind you. But I used to read alot of Varmint Hunter magazines. I suppose anything is possible though.

At least you wouldn't have to wait for them to come out of their holes, just hold a little low.

A .50? John you and Matt are nuts. So you went from a MAC 10 to a .50?
I feel sadistic tendencies are being released and does the term "vaporised flesh" come to mind?

Better to just place a few jugs of tannerite out next to a hole where you saw one pop down and wait for it to come up.

50 isn't going to make any more of a mess due to heavy construction on bullets and thin little targets.

For portability and for distances out to 1k yards, I wouldn't go above anything beyond 300WinMag and would actually be sticking to 308Winchester for lighter recoil(155grn Scenars likely being the ticket).


Take the 50 for the heck of it but it's the last gun in my collection I'd want to take, 5 foot long 40lb ALS and barely a handful of ammo, even from position shooting, is a pain in the ass. Not to mention muzzle blast is going to alert everything in the northern continenet to your presence even if shooting against the wind.

I want to be the first person to launch a Ca. ground squirrel into outter orbit and tannerite is the only way I think I could manage to reach escape velocity to get squirrelnic to complete his journey around the earth.

But being in Ca. I'm not sure I want to mess with tannerite.
