that is my goal, going to try and do a pd hunt and get a few yotes this fall
Nothing is as challenging, to me, as a PD with his head poking out of the mound at 300 yards and all you see is a beady little eye watching you. A penchant for range estimation and that flat shooter sure help it a bunch.
The best firearm for self defense? Any loaded one will do.

A couple buddies and I are going to do some pdogging mid month. It will be my .264's official break-in. Pics will follow, good or bad.
Greg has it nailed, too. It's the ability to gauge the distance, know your ballistics, and exploit the natural curiosity of these varmints that make for an enjoyable day.
At 500+ yards, things can really become rewarding. I spotted for a friend who took his 6mm Dasher to task one day. He had been playing whack-a-mole with a mound muffin for about 5 shots, when he knocked the stuffing out of that critter. After we confirmed it wasn't going to re-appear, we walked out with rangefinder and GPS and confirmed the distance at 1,005 yards. The upshot was that he was shooting el-cheapo rounds that he was fire-forming. I still tease him when he has trouble with his premium loads connecting at lesser distances. ;D
A problem thoroughly understood is always fairly simple. Found your opinions on facts, not prejudices. We know too many things that are not true.
took the 20 practical out this weekend and tried some more loads. I have one load with imr 4198 and the 32 vmax that shoots really good but i always like to keep playing.
I also shot some 40 vmax with lt32 and i think it is going to be a laser. they got a little hot on the top loads but there is a node right at 3800 that looks pretty safe
24.8 LT-32 40 vmax 1) 3853 2) 3853 3) 3852
High: 3853 Low: 3852 E.S.: 1 Ave.: 3852.7 S.D.: 0.5 Great workup, BD. This load (above) did the single hole, if I read it correctly. Seriously nice consistency, with wonderful potential. The little dawgs need to take cover.
