    Squirrel Control

    Ok . just watched that . The cross hairs were on the bunny . So pretty close . At 35 yards plus you would need to be just above the ears for a head shot on a sub 12 .22

    If you want . I am not new to shooting bud . I am nearly 66 and have been shooting since I was about 12 . I know what a well placed .22 will do . just my opinion . You missed the bit were I said I have seen the run off when struck with a low powered .22 .

    Disagree westphalian , westphalian, westphalian . ( respectfully ) We don't want it with a head ache . We want it dead . I'm not saying its not accurate , you can zero in ab 8ftlbs if you want but will it kill it ?

    I recon if its sub 12ftlbs it needs to be .177 and not .22 . At sub 12ftlbs a .177 is faster , flatter and will penetrate better than the " flop shot " you would get with a sub 12ftlbs .22 Squirrel are quite tough and I have seen them run off when hit with a low powered .22 . If you have an FAC of 28 - 30 ftlbs the yes , .22 it is .

    Felling dogs

    Yes mine was a Jonsered part for the J'red version of the 560 but would be the same part as Husqvarna .

    Felling dogs

    562 dawgs wont fit a 560 as the clutch cover is different . The mounting holes are further apart on the outer dawg to accommodate the 3/8 clutch and rim . I got some for mine that were actually a Jonsered part .

    Occasional use saw

    The best saw you can afford in the 50cc to 60cc range .

    Don't use your saw .

    All terrain tyres

    I run Cooper AT3s . Find them a good compromise between road and off road . Good reviews .
