    I ran over one with a kawasaki mule the other day. Does that count? I finished him off with a pair of steel toes and a leatherman......

    Ryan,

    In the years past I was shooting a custom Benchrest rifle in the 6PPC . Last year i purchased a 6.5 x 284 Kelby build 1000 yard gun . After about 20 groundhogs it was getting boring so i purchased a custom Remington XP 100 .As with anything I try to improve I do alot of my shooting off of a Farley Compact rest .Ive gone to the 3 inch flat forearm rear trigger stock .I'm in the process of doing another barrel and different caliber I'm strongly looking at the 6 x 47 Lapua or a 6 Dasher. Been talking to Bob Green out of PA for doing the metal work . Hope i answered your question. This is the new stock it's Fugly.

    Jim,

    I'd like to shoot some Groundhog, but I have Stage 4 Parkinson's Disease. I would probably be a burden :eek:

    I'm in Richmond, Indiana - 57 years old

    My Model 700 .22-250
