Re: Long Range Hog Killin\'


Congratulations on your hog! Great shot as well. I have taken 3 hogs, 2 with a 44 Mag and 1 with a 309 JDJ and they can really take some punishment. Just use a big gun and shoot the wiggle out of them. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

Way to go, look forward to seeing your pics.

Re: Long Range Hog Killin\'

Glad top hear you fellows got out to get some pork finially. Your on the money with the tough part. Now sit back and think of some of the ones we go after where you can only see about 20 or less yards and a rifle is to long to be efficient. Thats when the fun starts.

Seriously though glad to hear you got one down and I know Lerch will be doing it soon as well.

My new rig showed up this afternoon, and I already got a couple dozen loaded up and ready to bust something this weekend. Even if they are barrel-break-in, fireforming loads, there had better not be a porker walkin out downrange or it will pay a severe price. LOL

Hey mike, you remember seeing me and BJ thumpin those pdogs out to 730yds and then BJ dropping that steer at 450yds, those were those fireform loads. They meen business!!!

I think we were getting around 3200fps with fireforming so there is still some really impressive thump carried with them.

Post some pics of that new pork poker when you get a chance. I bet it is damn nice lookin. Kirby does a amazing job. My plan is to go on the same hog hunt again here in a week or two and I am gonna try to land one of the 169.5's right on a hogs melon. Should make for good video!!!

Have fun and keep us updated!!
