I canít tell you the number of times Iíve almost posted the same thing! Every time I type SHOT I always have to triple check it. I saw it and laughed and was also relieved because WHEN I do post the same thing, and I know I eventually will, at least Iíll have some company!

Now that prairie dogs are sticking their noses up, testing the weather I may have to amend my list. I probably shoot these on roughly a 100 to 1 round ratio to my big game rifles.

1.  .222 Rem

2.  .22-250 Rem

3.  .17 HMR
