Are you gonna run any Wildcats through that 264??? I'd like to see the 142 and anything heavier if Richard has it.. I'll see what my next order has and send some down if you want..

When are you planning on doing this???

    Wish I had the time off! I'm not that far away in Cheyenne. I think it's a great idea! It's a far more accurate test than ballistic gel or wet phone books.

    Sounds like the perfict place for the .338 !

    If your going to film the shot why not knock that pig on
    his ass .

    Besides; if he weighs 800lbs thats about the size of an Elk.
    ( good way to test your Elk load at distance.)

    Loading the "Ol Boar" into a pickup might be the better video or should I say rodeo. I distinctly remember my brother in law trying to load a young bull into a truck bed several years ago. He never did get it loaded until he shot it and winched it in. Now that was funny right there.

    Boar

    Very true, we tried to load a boar that was probably 300+lbs and did not want to go.
    It was an experience to say the least. The owner had really messed with him the day before and hit him with the prod bunch of times, so nice and easy wasnt going to work.

    This is a great idea! I like your style buddy,

    I would ask the impact velocities match the distance you would shoot from.

    You may have to load down for that or shoot from the distance, which ever is easiest.

    264 win mag would do me.

    I love the idea. I love it so much, I actually posted the same idea on the other thread 2 minutes before I read your post. Wish I could be there.
