The 22-250 would do a great job. Like you, my concern is all the roads around the place. I think I would go with a 22 MAG or 17 HMR given the roads and houses. JMHOjro45 said:I have the 22-250 witch will reach out there and get them. Where I hunt the hogs is a 100 acre farm with roads all around this farm and it pretty flat land. Also a couple houses. I would like to know witch rifle would be best on this farm for ground hogs.
I hunt coyotes, prairie dogs, antelope and deer on several square miles just north of the house. The area is surrounded by acreages with homes so I still have to watch for ricochets. I've found the best rilfe is my .22-250 with 40g Nosler Ballistiv Tips and 50g Hornady V-MAX. I've had a couple ricochets (into a hill, thank God) with the .257 Roberts and 75g V-MAX. I don't like using my .22LR because ricochets are even more common - the bullets simply don't have the velocity needed to destroy themselves on impact. If I were you I'd stick with the .22-250.jro45 said:Well I took my 22-250 and just had to watch where my rounds would go. I mean this rifle shoots pretty flat out to 300 yds.
I found some ground hogs eating there hearts out. It wan't any long shot but I got one and my bullet went into the ground. Thanks guys. I will return. They are all over the place out there. I thought about using my 22 rim fire or my 257 WBY.
