I'll see if they are on the CZ website. I sent them to Alice about an hour after the kill.

If not My buddy may still have them saved on his computer. I never saw anyone so dubfounded. He just sat there shaking his head saying "That just ain't possible"...

The big girl did take two shots. One to the heart and one that split the firs two vertebrae behind the skull.

In my defense both were standing unsupported and she was on a flying assed run after I'd dispatched her running buddy.

Re: Biggest Critter withe a 6.5?

Yipes! Those are some nice porkers. Myself and a couple buddies are looking into a trip for feral hog this winter. Sounds like a blast. Well,I just got home from the smithy's shop. The 284 is coming along nicely. Should be a week out if he isn't interrupted too much. we were looking over some 6.5/284 and 6.5X47 reamers he had there. I need a new hobby. This is too expensive.

My next LR rig is going to be the 6.5x47 or the 270WSM. My family has dropped a lot of Whitetail w/ the 270Win.

Sub 350lb'rs are common around here. Bigger one's take some work and time.

If you decide to come this way let me know and I can probably put you on to some folks that can get you set up for an all but guranteed opportunity.
