It's always easier to get forgiveness than permission (didn't you learn that in "guy-school"? ;) )

I've only got four Coopers (221FB, 20VT, 204R, 223), and all...

I can whistle at about 110 db's, and if I "chirp" at about half volume, I can get both ground squirrels to stand up, and rock chucks to raise their heads for a lookabout.

Nuthin' more appropriate for Orygun ground rats than the 20VT! Powder volume to size of target is just about "right". :)

For years I've used one of the earlier Leupold 25X 50mm armored spotters for range work, and I can easily see bullet holes (.22 cal) at 200 yards. Younger eyes could probably see them at 300.
