Ground hog vs. .50 BMG round
unless you plan to eat them
that is a good way to learn to shoot a 50cal. Combined with good a range finder.
Shot placement is everything! I would rather take a round of 50BMG to the foot than a 22short to the base of the skull.
all 23 of my guns are 45/70 govt 357 mag, 22 or 12 ga... I believe in keeping it simple
