Re: 300-400 Yard Hogs This Weekend

Thanks for sharing. Good hogs and good shooting. I thought that back drop looked awefully familiar. We spent Sunday through yesterday morning, out in the Mountian Home area. Great country for LR as well as good deer. Saw some nice ones just didn't get a shot off.

We got back to this side of the world in time for the evening hunt. I was set up in a similar situation along side of the flood levee which runs through my friends property. I had 538yds one way and 380'ish straight out. The only problem was the cotton farmer was picking, and pushing things out of the cotton field. I saw several big shooter hogs, but they were busting that pasture with the after burners on. I will be back on Friday, to hopefully stretch the legs of the .270 A.M. out some.

We have a small lease just North of Jacksboro. We are landlocked on two sides with a two hundred acre wheat field running North and South. We'll be back at it this weekend. I bought a better tripod so maybe we can get some video. Good luck!

How do the 150 BTs work generaly on game. Have you chronied them? I'm working up a load for my 280 and they shoot best so far. They shoot around 3000fps for me. I'm wondering how they do at an impact speed around 2800 or so. That's around 100yds for me, I'd guess 200 or better for you. capt david [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
