hickok said it wasn't for squirrel hunting.
what would a .308 do to a squirrel?
>be hunting innawoods with my dad
>squirrel chatters at us
>squirrel is now following us and chattering
>see deer on other side of small clearing
>deer trot off, tails in air
>dad gets pissed
>squirrel chatters from low tree branch 15 meters away
>dad raises .30-06
>lower half of squirrel turns into red fog
>top half of squirrel ejects straight up over 10 feet into the air, spinning at multiple-thousands of RPM
>contents of upper rodent flinging out of rotating torso creating a pinwheel shape
>torso lands on ground, speeds away like a cartoon because of spin
>bark missing from branch directly below where squirrel used to be
>bits of fur wedged in bark/wood interface
>tail lodged firmly into tree trunk 3 feet away
This machine gun in turkeys service
Do prairie dog's usually do anything to justify killing them?
Everyone bitches about gophers but I've had to shoot a handful of them twice in like 25 years. Seems overblown tbqh senpai.
Depending on your locale, they can be not consequential at all, or considered serious pests.
There are a shit lot of "varminting" videos on YT where people are poppin' 'em. Entertaining stuff, in a mindless sorta way.
Beats me. It's just a dozen or so posts, all on /k/, spouting that same kind of abrasive rhetoric as seen above, doesn't seem like anything one would require a tripcode for.
I doubt he'd tell, but given his handle and tone, I'd say "for the sole purpose of being as obnoxious as possible."
Farmers with cattle hate then because the cows roll ankles in gopher holes.
I've been invited a couple times to farms to blast away at gophers all day, in exchange for beer. Fucking great way to spend the weekend!
Well he is a freaking giant but he mentioned that the m60 he got to shoot in that video was m60e6 version which is the most modern incarnation (the barrel looked sub 16 inches when disassembled it, maybe even down to 10.5)
Then again comparing Hickok 45 against the size of other objects is hard in general
Horses and cattle can turn an ankle in their holes. If you're anywhere near water, the fuckers are too stupid to realize digging their burrows into dams fucks everyone in the vicinity over.
Probably would have done more if i hit it straight on.
>you live around where anon lives
>you know what the squirrel population is there
>you have seen first hand the hordes of these little fuckers that devastate all that lies in their omnivorous little paths.
Fuck you. Those tree rats aren't endangered.
Also an endangered species to anon.
Christ, I hope it was fast, cousin shot a suirrl but forgot he loades it with buckshot, the upper half was crawling and he had to put it out with a second shell of correctly loaded birdshot.
Sometimes a lower caliber is actually more humane.
Once upon a time during training I called in artillery on a cluster of trees. Little did I know there was a couple deer hiding their...
>rounds out, TOF 12 seconds
Just as I acknowledge the radio, the deer start running into the open
>not fast enough
One deer just dissappears, the other comes apart while flying through the air.
>mfw I watched it all through binos
The sheer force of the impact would've made it so that the squirrel's viscera would have been immediately ripped away from the main corpus.
Since that would cause an EXTREMELY sudden and drastic drop in blood pressure, the squirrel would've fainted instantly and almost immediately died due to blood loss. This all would've happened in milliseconds, which is less time than a squirrel's brain would be able to react to saying "oh shit, I no longer have an abdomen".
tl;dr Death was instantaneous.
Rabbit I scored a head shot on with my fuddyfive
was it this .45 by any chance
