I have a Browning Buck Mark with a red dot scope that I bought for shooting ground squirrels, rabbits, and the like. However, since I have a decked out 10/22, it doesn't get much use in that department. I have been thinking of trading that Buck Mark for a T/C Contender in 22 Hornet, so I can take the same animals at a longer distance with about the same size gun. Does anyone have any experience with this gun/caliber combo? I am thinking I would probably shoot at rabbits, ground squirrels and rockchucks from 25 to 150 yards with either the 35 grain V-max loads, or some 40 grain hollowpoints. I don't handload (yet), so I will be using factory ammo. Any help would be appreciated.
