That was cool!!!!!!  I saw something really close to that this past weekend.  I saw a guy shoot a groundhog with a .17 cal centerfire at about 100-120 yds.  He hit a little low, and it pretty much opened the thing up!

The centerfire may be a little too hot for what I want.  I'm planning on getting the .17 rimfire that Marlin makes.  They shoot great, and you can get an after-market trigger for it that is smooth as silk.

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

The .17's are sweet.  My dad got one recently - I believe it was the Marlin - and he loves it.   (is it just Ruger and Marlin that market those right now?)

Anshutz (sp?) makes the .17 also, in a rimfire I know.  The guy I hunt on got one with a bull barrel, put a huge Leupold scope on it, and a Harris bipod.  Pretty much, if you can see it, you can hit it!  Watched the old man drop a crow out of a tree at about 150-175 yds with it.

I'm going to get one to squirrel hunt with.  Dang squirrels ticked me off this year.  There were about 10 up in the tops of some tall hickory trees.  Needless to say, they were safe (I had a .22 LR)!  The guy I hunt on asked where all of the squirrels were when I got back down to the cabin.  Said he expected a bushell basket full, with as much shooting as I was doing up there!!!! :D

After I get the .17, it will be "Death From Below"!!!! 8)  8)

Good to my word, I got the .17!!!!!!  I did some major damage to some squirrel heads, but nothing like in the video.  They must have been using some type of centerfire with a hollow point bullet.
