Must be the water! Because I float the same boat! 500ish but I make gravel and ring steel like a champ. I say it is better to be prepared then not.

I love the feral dog Shot. I'd like to be doing that while target practicing! Great way to test your practice. Awesome...

I think I have fallen in love with the .308 Win. Ordered a Browning X bolt Varmint Stalker. Can't wait to make it my go to rifle. I have three boys that will shoot this same caliber. I believe in practice makes perfect and the 308 is the perfect practice round. My 10yr. old dropped an elk at 205 yds. One shot with a 165 accubond clean pass through. I was sold after that.

I have taken 2 wild hogs with my 308, winchester 70 push feed action broughton 20" 1-10 twist pushing a 175 SMK @ 2690. First hog was 725 and second was 815, both dropped in there tracks. These hogs were shot center shoulder and both rounds exited the off shoulder, Now to work up a load for my new Surgeon Scapel 308 just got it friday.

I followed him in from 800+ but wanted a broadside shot...


237 yards my wait was over.

21.75" rock creek barreled remington firing a 155 scenar traveling 2870ish did the trick.
