I shot p. dogs with an H Bar and a total custom AR-15 with a 28" Hart Max heavy varmint barrel with a 9 twist, set trigger built by Bill Wylde.

At that time I also shot BR competition and there was a standing pay off offered by the NBRSA for anyone that could shoot a .250 agg in a registered BR match. I could add in the .280 range but not five, 5 shot groups agging under .250. If the gun had been in a 14 twist, I think that I could have made the $500 from the NBRSA.

My HBAR would agg .750 with Sierra 55g BTHP and they really blew up the p.dogs out to 300 yards. The same bullet in a 14 twist in a 22/250 just laid the p. dogs over.

It was a real joy shooting a red hot p. dog town with an AR-15. I had 17 Thirty round clips and 12 of the 20 rounders...I really worked over the dog town.

The set trigger that Bill Wylde put on the AR was a joy also.

The 28" Max Heavy Varmint barrel along with the flat steel plate that I attached to the floating forearm, cut the recoil to nothing, so I instantly knew just how much to correct for windage and elevation.

I did have ranchers ride out and see what all the shooting was all about. A couple of them did not understand machine guns on p. dogs, but when they rode through all the carnage, they sure got a grin on their faces.

The only negative that I can come up with is that my shooting partner had a real bad time shooting side by side with me because I was mowing down the dogs faster than he could believe, it got him rattled a little. Also, about the time he was about to pull the trigger, I would shoot and blow his concentration (this is another hunting partner other than Ackman).

While being an avid coyote hunter, I never took the AR yote hunting due to the crazy California gun laws prohibiting a AR from being used on private property without written permission from the land owner and no use at all on federal or state land.
No doubt that a Govm't Model Colt would make a great yote rifle with a good trigger installed.

I have always used bolt action rifles for prairie dogs except a reworked Ruger 10-22 Target rifle on pups. Which brand and model cal 223 semi auto rifle should I look at that will do one inch or less groups at 100 Yds. I would like to keep the rifle under 12 pounds with a scope. I do not wont one with a carrying handle. Most of my shots at prairie dogs are within 300 Yds.

Rock River Arms A-4 Varminter. Write up a few months back in Shooting Times. That puppy was getting it done. Made me want one real bad. It will deliver tomorrow if the UPS or Fed-Ex truck shows up. Gonna jump on that 6mmAR upper real soon. Robert got his mess together. Just my opinion but everybody's got one. Bill

Got that RRA A-4 today. It is one fine piece. I never thought I'd ever say that about an auto rifle. Looks so good I hate to even take it out of the box but can't shoot it in the box. Everybody that loves rifles needs one of these. Bill

I love my AR built by Fulton Arms. it is very accurate and fun to shoot. BUT, I switched to a pair of single shot custom rifles for more range and more explosive results. I shot my AR for only 2 years and cannot part with it even though I don't shoot it much anymore.

I was able to get over 2900fps from both the 6mm and 6.5Banshee
this weekend. 95 SMKs in the 6 and 100 Scenars in the 6.5 both have 22" barrels.

Love my RRA Varmint! I have several varmint guns ,all bolts till a friend demonstrated the potential of the "Black Rifle" I wanted a medium range varmint gun for prairie dogs. Didn't want to burn up my 22-250 or 6AI on 200yd dogs and the 22 Hornet just wasn't getting it done so the .223 was a perfect choice. I am still amazed how this gun shoots! I handlos for it with a 55 gr HP and H335 it shoots 1/2" or less at 100yds. Was out with friends doing some target shooting this weekend and hitting coke cans at 250yds was no problem. They were most impressed.
