Nah, I've been shooting some distances for a while. Our property has a field that's 1100 yards long and 100-150 yards wide. Lots of hogs that I have no problem taking a shot at. Matter of fact, they just destroyed 13 acres of newly planted soybeans in that field. My dad saw over 50 in the field at 9:30 in the morning a couple of days ago.
I've been using a 45-70 and Ithaca pump 12 gauge for close shots on hogs and my bushmaster predator and tikka 7 mag for long shots. I promised to trade my 7 mag for the bushmaster predator to my father in law a while back, but never technically traded up until he asked for my 7 mag a few months ago.
That's what led me here when I was researching rifles for my new killer. Had my heart set on a sako grey wolf or finnlight, but decided to go tikka again. Looking forward to buying a couple new ar15 lowers and a 6.5 Grendel with the money saved.
