I have shot more, but not more without a miss. I bought a new Cooper rifle in 17 CCM and it is a perfect gopher gun. I took it, a 17 Remington, a 223 and a 17 HMR shooting gophers. I started with the 17 CCM and before I knew it I had shot 12 in a row without a miss. I was wondering how long I could keep up the streak. I kept shooting and I even got 3 doubles and a triple while I was running my streak.

Then, wouldn't you know it, before I could shoot a complete box of 50 without a miss, I missed a chip shot. 48 rounds without a miss, 49 was a gimme and I missed it. 49/50 on gophers isn't bad. A total of 54 with 50 shots fired certainly isn't a bad showing for 1 box of cartridges.

I ended up with a total 200 confirmed kills on the clicker...

neato.


Due to the increased price of ammo, don't expect a warning shot...

Shrapnel: You are having entirely to much fun!
Good for you though.
I have run into the fifties without a miss several times - on Prairie Dogs!
But Ground Squirrels are much smaller targets and are much more prone to darting away just as the "trigger breaks"!
I am sure that is what happened on your 48th shot?
It is VERY hard to even get into the 30's straight on Ground Squirrels - even with centerfire Rifles.
Good for you on the doubles and the triple - those are smile making feats as well.
Keep up the good work and great photos.

That miss on number 49 is like the fifth shot of a pinkie nail size group that decides it doesn’t want to be near its buddies.

Looks like fun! No colony critters around here and I’m sure the farmers are glad of it but crows are about the only chance to get more than one, maybe two shots.

I got a triple on crows one time. They were lined up on a limb and I thought I was shooting at one…a handload with the 80 grain Power Lokt out of my 243 showed me its expansion qualities.

Shot prairie dogs in '01, as I tagged my pronghorn the first day. Had a blast. Groundhogs aren't as cooperative, at least for me. Been to numerous farms that are "polluted" with chucks, but never when I'm there. Glad some people are burnin' powder.
