Long Range P.A. Hoggin!

Went out with some guys I went to school with, one of them just happens to be Kevin Cram of Montour County Rifles, And another JUDD from this site as well. I had a Blast! These guys are very skilled marksman and great guys!
We only killed one Hog, but they killed a bunch of rocks! I never would have believed the stuff these guys can do with a gun, if I wouldn't have seen it for myself!
Shane and Kevin were shooting rocks and dirt clumps the size of soft balls at 1013 +/- with scary regularity. And Shane made a awesome 467yd head shot on a standing hog, with his Yellow Russo stocked M.C.R 6m.m.-284. We Chrono'ed my .260 as soon as we got there so Kevin could get me some Come-ups on his PDA and before I knew it I was on deck looking at a 685yd shot, would have been my furthest yet but wind,nerves or elevation got me! I missed by a couple inches,
Would have made a great 100th round out of the gun but maybe next time! Like next Thursday!!

When you get good at making head shots on hogs, then come out west and make some head shots on dogs

Re: Long Range P.A. Hoggin!

Sounds like you guys had a good time.... as usual

500 yard head shots and near misses at 685 yards is something to behold.

I think I see the Corian monster in one of the pictures...

Keep up the good work boys, and report back after next weeks events..
