    My Prairie Dog buddy Geoff on our (year) 2000 trip to Montana. When I had an FFL, I ordered us a matching pair of Remington 40-XB KS rifles in 243 Winchester. I sent two Leupold 8.5x25 Target Turret scopes to Premier Reticule and had them converted to 20x50; shown with a sun shade. Rifles have a 27.5" heavy match stainless barrel. They came with factory targets showing a 3/8" group for each one. We shoot Hornady 75 grain V-Max moly coated bullets over 41 grains of Varget - 3,450 FPS. The loads shoot sub 1/2" out of both rifles. We were taking P-dogs at 600 - 700 yards. The prairie dogs are about the size of a 20 ounce coke bottle. This picture is on the "Four Square Town". The ranchers name their dog towns. This one was 2 miles by 2 miles - "Four Square" Miles - one dog town. The ranchers only asked us to give a count of hits per town; no fees, no license, just fun. We tallied on the towns, and using 223 and 243 we averaged a 39% hit rate - only counting the dogs we could positively confirm as deceased. In two trips (2000 and 2003) we eliminated just over 1,000 prairie dogs. If you run the math, that is a lot of shooting. I know it isn't a nice close-up of the rifle, but thought I would share anyway.

    Did they supply the ammo??? Dang that's a ton of shooting. With that hot of ammo in a .243 I'm surprised you weren't burning barrels up every 800 rounds

    Actually, with moly coated bullets, we had zero signs of pressure. Normal extraction, no flat primers, no smudges around the primers. Bore just ahead of the chamber still looks factory fresh. We took 1K each of 75gr 243 and 55gr 223. Worked the close mounds (out to around 400 yards) with the 223 - or until we shot 100 rounds, then swabbed the bore, put it in the cleaning cradle and ran the 243 until either 100 rounds or distance exceeded our abilities. Then we either finished the cleaning and swapped calibers again, or moved the setup to another location.
