Bullet Terminal Performance Test - Want In?

Hey fellas, I have one heck of an opportunity for some terminal performance tests.

My neighbor never heard of a thing such as bullet testing. Dairy Farmers He doesn't under stand LRH in the least. He's the kind of guy that goes on a deer hunt up a local canyon and sees elk. Runs to town and gets an elk tag. Goes back to the spot and never sees them again.

However he does have an 800# boar that needs put down. Its worth exactly nothin' for whatever use, he says. He figures that a 22 shell and less than 5 bucks worth of diesel to dig the hole will do the job.

I figure we'll haul the big fella out by my backstop and do him in with the 22. Then suspend him upside down between rail road ties. That saves the farmer from having to dig a hole. Hey, 5 bucks is 5 bucks

Some Sharpie points of impact and a couple of video cameras a decent knife and things should be ready to go.

I have access to rifles for the following Cartridges:

264 Win Mag.
270 Win
270 AM
7mm Rem Mag - if I get it finished in time.
338 RUM
375 H&H

I figure to video both on and off sides when the shot hits. However I do need a volunteer camera man for the off side part.

The target subject will then become coyote bait.

Whatcha think?
