I have never shot these buggers but I was invited along with my brothers and several friends to set up shop on some land in southern Utah and exterminate some of these pests.

You gotta read this article and this thread from, here it is. (read the part about "Belding's ground squirrels")

They say it's easy to go through 1500rnds per shooter per day!!!


this will be the perfect opportunity to test out my newest AR.

Are you going to use a .22 LR conversion kit on that AR?

Well, we went... We weren't able to find the land who belonged to our friend but we still got some of those buggers. Just not in the hundreds... It sucks because we werent able to set up camp so to speak, because we had to shoot on public land that had less sage rats. We did get permission to go on a few people's property as well, but it wasn't quite what we we looking for.

We all brought .22's as well. I brought my 10/22, so did a few others. One guy had a .22 upper for his Cav arms lower, one of my brothers had a .22 conversion BC and magazine that he used in his AR. They are pretty neat setups.

We had to take out some of the local crow population as well. :) The .223 just rips those things apart.

All in all, it was a fun day, regardless.
