Vicious Vole Ventilation Video
« on: October 05, 2018, 04:41:38 PM »
So I am watching a pile of thin wood veneer and I see a vole snagging all the black oil sunflower seeds I have out for the songbirds.
Well, I line up on the spot and ventilate his vole dome from 40 yards away using my STX FX Crown in .22. I hit his little 2 1/2" body with an 18gr JSB travelling at 890 feet per second.
Lets just say a follow-up shot was not necessary, LOL

Enjoy!

Actually, the pellet went through one layer of veneer, and did the smack down. I'd be comparing the hole through the vole if it were me. Because, sometimes these shots open up the pellet enough, that the damage done is rather spectacular. Was that the case this time?

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

Because the veneer was so weathered from rain and cooking in the sun, it had very little effect on the projectile the vole was badly damaged mainly because the projectile was 1/3 the size of his head 😆
