Just got back from rabbiting and MAN was there some rabbits?! CRAWLING! We were shooting them out of the windows of the house they are so numerous.
This is me at the breakfast table. Bella the dog was OK with the shot BTW.
Got 140 odd all up including this one.
Sorry, not cast bullets in that rifle but lead anyways.
I have never seen a white rabbit in the wild before. I have shot black, blue (black with white fleck), ginger and a tri colour but never white/albino. This the third off that property so it gives an idea of how high the numbers are. In some spots I was dropping bunnies fast as I could cycle the bolt on the Ruger. I was seeing 200 + rabbits each outing and the property has been shot recently by a professional night shooter and he has been getting 200 + per night!
My wife bowled a pair at 60 yards with my suppressed Martini .32-20. This photo was taken from the bedroom window. She is shooting at rabbits by the stump. Load is 311008 over 3.8gr Unique for just shy of 1000fps. VERY quiet.
Here is the result.
I took a few with the .32-20 also but further out and using the high vel. load I have of a 311316 over 15gr H4227 for 1900fps. Forgot how much that FN at that speed messes up rabbits.
AND the photo of the weekend is this. Abby and the Ruger I am baby sitting.
Not CB but my mate arrived with his .17HNR and it was a laser. I have never seen or used one and it is WAY impressive for a 17gr bullet. Bit costly though for someone as tight fisted as me.
We are going back at Easter. The Easter bunny is in for a nasty wee surprise.
