Our egg shoots are at 400 yds, for those I use my .204 Ruger. If there is heavy wind then something a little beefier would be in order

You set up 5 eggs at what ever yardage and you shoot at them. You get 5 shots but only three the first round and the the one who breaks all of them wins and if a tie you have a shoot off. Can be a lot of fun and I have to do some fone tunning on my rifles.

Here's mine. A Winchester M70 in 300 WM. My dad gave it to me for Christmas two years ago. He bought it back in the early seventies.
