    Video: Night-Vision Pest control T1x 17hmr & Pard NV008

    Here's a quick montage of a few shots from some pest shooting on a local orchard last night.

    A couple of average shots on the pair to start the night, hit them a little low, but they died pretty quick all the same.

    I use to head shoot rabbits mainly, but after a comment from a professional pest controller on here about the potential for bullets passing thru, I try to body shoot most now, especially on the smaller properties that are quite built up, with roads close by and big plastic fertigation tanks etc, I don't need ricochets or pass-throughs carrying on and hitting something else. Also with the Pard 008 sitting so high compared to a standard scope mounted in rings, it messes with the trajectory and PBR etc, and with no range finder, some of the close shots hit a bit lower than the aiming point, so body shooting gives a little more margin for range/trajectory error inside of the PBR of around 150 yards.

    I'm using a Pard NV019 Handheld IR scanner to find them, and shooting with a Pard NV008 IR digital night vision scope mounted on a Tikka T1x in 17 Hmr. I'm running one of @Kiwi-Hunter's External IR Illuminators fitted on the side of the Pard.

    The 17HMR is quieter than I'd expected? (no supersonic crack?)

    Great suppressor eh.....Nah mate the Mic in the pard is internal under the screw on cap that covers/seals up the port for the SD card and other plug sockets. So basically the Mic doesnt work when you have the cap screwed on (which you really need to to stop water/dust getting into the plug sockets and SD card slot etc. Stupid design fault.

    The rifle is much louder than that, it has a fair crack even with the suppressor.

    Gotta love the 17HMR, one of the truly great varmint rounds, delivers all that energy into the animal, barely ever ricochets and has some good long range abilities.

    Yes , what’s not to like about the HMR… I was admonished on here once as I suggested to another poster ‘get/try a HMR. Don’t think you’ll regret it…’ still don’t know why I was given grief for it….

    How do you find the Pard NV019 for spotting @GWH?

    Particularly, how long have you ran it and has it been mainly for rabbiting?
