I also do a lot of ground squirrel hunting and most of my shots are 50yds and beyond as well. When I took the p-rod out for a go I found it was too light for me! Your thinking this guy is crazy, every hunter likes a light rifle. Anyway the gun shot pretty good but I found my accuracy decreased because I was normally used to shooting a gun above 8 lbs of weight, the prod felt more like a toy gun (I only use it with the stock only...carbine mode) than a real hunter, but I will say it had enough power to do the job. I found that predators shot fairly well in the gun. I was getting excellent results with premiers and even the JSB's. I ended up adding a 17 inch barrel that really made the suckers fly! At first after adding the longer barrel I was getting about 130fps gains, but after the transfer port mod, it shot up quite a bit, I'll chrono it this weekend.
