In reference to "Beware the Armadillos"

7.62x54R works great!!!  Can you guess which one was shot with a FMJ and the other two with SP (not too hard to distinguish)?

That's funny. Today My dad and I were building a fence around what will be a food plot. Two armadillos were rooting around about 75 yds away.  I thought about the beware the armadillo post too. I should have grabbed the AR out of the truck and shot them but we were racing daylight.

Yari, yes they are a nuisance.  They dig holes in the yard chasing grubs, worms, etc.  In addition they can carry leprosy, hence you see me wearing the nitrile glove when handling.

yes, leprosy.  I think there was a small outbreak in FL this year and I believe they traced it back to the armadillos.
