So i think my 17hmr loves the 20gr xtp

Was at the range today for an hour or so. Most groups were not very good but then i did this. 50 yards 5 shots. The difference is an older gentleman had my try his slightly higher front bag so i could use my rear bag. Man did that make a difference.

 O0 That's great news, fuzz! So your rifle likes the 20gr, huh?

I was wondering when you was going to be able to hunt some squirrels. I bet you have been itching to get after them with that spanking new rifle! The .17 HMR is a great invention for hunting squirrels.

What scope did you put on your rifle?

I get out every weekend and kill a few.

I have a cheap simmons 3x9 on it. Need to find a company that makes affordable scopes with out being made in china. But it was my only option at the time. Have it sitting in its case right next to me. But going saturday is gonna hurt i think i have gout in my ankle. If i do im still going just gonna hurt. But i figure if i find my spot and can get there if i can see em i can hit em. Ill chase the corpses down when i decide to go home. ill bring some Stuff to mark the line of the bodies. Oh and if my dad can get free he is going to use my old 17hmr. So tomorrow after my dr's appointment im finishing sitting it in for him.
