I was having a hard time seeing my sights as usual and missed some easy shots. Readers helped to see the sights but blurred the squirrels so bad I put them up. So I painted the front sight white and the rear black and it helped A LOT! I went 3 for 4 yesterday.

What caliber is your rifle and what load are you using?

I'm getting a late start this year. Sold my tried and true
40 cal. squirrel rifle last year to fund the custom rifle I had built. Shot a good bit last spring with my new rifle but just haven't settled on a load with this little .32 . I'm gonna work a bit with it this week then get out when the season opens back up in a couple weeks. Need to kill some squirrels with my new one.

It's a .32. The spout on my hunting flask throws 18-19 grains so that's what I use. It's accurate, maybe not the best load but it's what I'm using this year. It tears the meat up pretty good but so did 15 grains out of my crockett last year.
