Talking Varmint Rifles

Hello CalGunners. Okay, so haven't seen a thread for this. I know there are rimfire varmint hunters out there...so let's see your varmint hunting creations. Here is my Savage Mark I FVT .22LR with a TruGlo 36x44 fixed scope mounted using Leupold bases and rings and with my own backyard camouflage job. I call it the "Sand Viper".









So, I've shown you what I got, let's see what y'all got. Also, please specify what you hunt (if you do) and what brand and specific bullet type which you like to use for your quarry.

Stay frosty people.

I know only 5% of California hunts, but seriously? No responses? Nobody out there uses a rimfire to plink varmints?

I use this for squirrels and wabbits, and the occasional crow. MiniMags have served me well. I stay within 150 yards with this one.

For rabbits and ground squirrels under 150yds I'll use my CZ 452 in .17hm2 with a Leupold 3-9x33 EFR, for coyotes, bobcats or long distance squirrels it's a Remington VSSF with a 4.5-14x40.
You may get more responses in the hunting fourm.

Sorry, no pics, but I use a very old Remington 510 (I think). It's single shot bolt, that used to be, and possibly still is, called the "Remington Boy's Rifle" You got squirrels? Which eye would you like them shot through? I'm talkin' 50 -60 yds.; I take 4 or 5 every trip to the mailbox.

ParaFrame, that 510 is all you'll ever need!

I use a G2 T-C Contender Carbine in .22 LR "Match" format with a Redfield 2 3/4X scope for ground squirrels in broken country like the coastal hills where shots are close and an old Savage 4M bolt action .22WRM with a Nikon 4X where the ranges are a little longer. Find that the "SGB Flatnose" .22LR bullets, either the factory ones or the ones I make, work fine at reasonable ranges, the old original Super X 40 gr. .22WRM hollowpoints are what the Savage likes.

California ground squirrels, the coastal variety that are the size of a tree squirrel, need to be hit in the upper 1/3 of their body to kill them on the spot. (The "upper" the better! Right in the bean is the best.) The little desert Antelope or "gopher" kinds are easier to kill, but harder to hit.
