I got up at 4:00am this morning so I could get up to an area that is legal to shoot the 5mm Rimfire at Ground Squirrels. Most shots were within 75 yards and I only missed twice! I was using the Centurion Varmint ammunition in my Remington Model 591. As you can tell by the pictures and the short video, the 5mm Rimfire does a good job knocking out varmints of all sizes. Some of the larger Ground Squirrels were almost torn in half!
It’s been a good morning, but the heat has kicked in so I’m heading home. Check out the video below for more information and some discussion about the results of this hunt.
Here are some of the results:
