More Whistle Pig Porn

Okay, maybe it's not as exciting as the title to my thread, but it's my thread and I'll call it what I want to.
Yesterday's pig hunt pix. One at 963 yards, one at 987 but he didn't look too good after 180 grains of Berger VLD magic, and the winner at 1010 yards. I'm trying to break the 3/4 mile mark at 1320 yards, but it's hard to find a place where I can see that far in the high basins and canyons where I am shooting, then when I do find one I have not found pigs. Nothing to do but go out and try again.

Nice going! I must admit I'm a little envious of you guys out there in the wide open spaces.

Something in 7mm and it's working. 7mm Remington Magnum based on the 180 gr Berger and long action? 7mm STW?

Greybull stock
Badger Max 50 rings
Schmidt Bender PMII 4-16x50 with Holland ART reticle and 1/4 MOA turrets.

Load Data;
RWS cases, neck turned
180 gr. Berger Hunting VLD's seated .010 into the lands
Fed. 215 primers
64.3 gr H4831 SC

Chrono says 2990 FPS. G7 Ballistic software corrected velocity to match field shooting results 2980 fps.

I am reloading with Redding type S dies and a competition seater. Bullet runout 0 to .001

Scott set everything up and did initial load development. It is working so well I have not changed anything except seating depth.
