22-243 Win

Anyone hunting hogs or dogs with a 22-243 Win?
If so what bullets are you using?

    Looks like whatever your using is working!!!! Just curious, is that a flat metal base on the bottom of your stock that your pod is attached to? I have been looking for a clever mounting method for the bottom of mine. Nice pic of a sweet gun by the way.

    I shoot an 8 twist 27"Shilen barreled 22-250 & Amaxes @ prairie dogs every chance I get.Man what an improvment over the 55grainer in the wind @ 500yards.Lifts them up,messes them up,dropes them dead=CJ
