First blood with the .308

Well i went out yesterday with the new .308 and thought i would try to get its first kills. Well i was walking around a bean field and seen one running towards his hole so i dropped down and pulled out my sling sticks and set up and waited for him to come back out. Well after about 20 minutes and him being a no show i stood up to look over the rest of the bean field. Well not 50 yards away i had one walking around eating. I rested my gun on the sling sticks and squeezed the trigger. 1 dead groundhog. As i went over and was looking at my first kill with the 308 i looked down the edge of the field and down at the end of the field i seen a big hog walking back toward the edge of the woods. Well i did not have my range finder on me but i guessed it to be right around 200 yards so i proped up on my sticks and waited for him to stop but it did not appear that he was going to stop before going into the bushes so i held a little forward on him and squeezed one off. I seen the impact and it rolled him. Hit him a little far back but dead hog none the less. I am useing the 175g SMK and it looks like it opened up on both of them. Dont guess i should worry about them on a deer huh.

Yea it was the first time the farmer had planted beans beside the creek and he told me he wont do it again because the hogs have got the first 20 yards of beans eat up and the field aint but about 60 yards wide and about 350 yards long. They have been eating good, real good.
