Default My new long range varmint setup

I got my new lr varmint setup yesterday. Its a 22-25 and these are the specs:
Nikon Monarch 6-24x50 BDC Reticle Magnum
B-Square Bipod
Im also am currently using Winchesters Supreme Elite XP3 ammo till i start reloading for it. Im only gona use it for p-dogs,g-hogs,badgers,ground squirrels, etc. Just for those little varmints that wont be picked up. I plan to be doing a lot of long range crow hunting to. I think ill like mi new setup.

That's a good scope. I've got the Monarch 5.5-16x44 with the BDC on my .243, and it sure is nice and clear. The lines on the reticle are a little too thick for shooting prairie dogs past 400 yards for my personal taste, but not enough to make me regret buying the scope.

This is amazing...what kind of rangefinder do you have that ranges nonreflective targets @ 781 yards? I can't get my Nikon 440 to work on a tree past 50 yards.

ORIGINAL: Ridge Runner

what is your definition of long range, the BDC reticles work ok to 600 or so, if, and I mean if you tune your load to it, ya wanna go farther than that ya gotta dial. Here is my LR varminter, it also pulls some duty during deer season. kreiger barreled rem 700 chambered in 6.5 gibbs, watch the LR shooting it is addictive, sounds like ya got a nice rifle

That entire setup caost me.....around 600. I got one heck of a deal i think there was a better setup that was a 300 win. mag but it was 1011, and ive already got one so i took the 22-250. I went and reloaded about 600 rounds this morning. I shot it just now out to 300 and its shoots like a bute. I use a leica 1200 same as RR. I also got a spotting scope made by redhead. So im set.
