    Took my Sig ASP20 to the dairy today after getting it last night and sighted in at 22yds. There's some trees by where I work around the calves that usually have lots of sparrows during the day. 7 shots and I got 5 sparrows at around 30yds on average. This gun loves the JSB Hades and AA 16gr. Used the Hades today and they did a number on them. Here's pics of gun with a Discovery 10X44 HD scope and 3 of the sparrows.

    Nice! The sparrows at the dairy I pest at are smart little buggers. They see my truck and off they go.

    Nice shooting Dairyboy. Keep after the sparrows. They are public pest #1. I like your pellet choice. For close up work 25/30 yd s the rw s supermags really lay the snack down on pest. The soft lead is very good for inside work where past thru is a problem.

    Thanks guys!

    They usually are smart and hide in the trees but now that colder weather is here no leaves to hide behind 😁

    I do need to try some of the GTOs in it and see how they do. Just have so many Hades and 16gr AA and the JSB 18gr which also shoots well in it. 

    Yeah Tommy I try my best to take them out. They eat the grain that our calves have as well as dove and starlings however only sparrows yesterday. The Hades do a number on them also and are great for pesting. I haven't tried wadcutters yet for pesting but here great things about them. Ill need to get some of those and the Super H points though cause I have a HW50S .22 that's at Motorheads getting his magic done. Those will be great for close range stuff

    Notice you have the synthetic stock version. What is circular opening (hole) in the stock butt ? I was told that the synthetic stock gun might have an adjustable comb.

    Now you have to seek out and destroy the rat population 🙂

    You know I thought I heard that they would be adjustable on the synthetic but mine isn't. Unless they'll come out with them later who knows. Luckily my comb is perfect height for what I want so no issues thankfully. But the holes have a Phillips head screw on either side. Why? Not sure they honestly looks like it can maybe be a 2 piece stock as there is a very small faint line that cuts the stock in half but it looks so smooth and fits together perfectly that maybe it's just molding lines? I'm not sure. Will be working on some rats next as we have a few that'll eat the spilled grain!

    Thanks Mark! Will keep after them for sure!
