Re: Custom pig rifle

aaaa ..you sir, the one who makes us other pig hunters feel inadequate! ... and dare I say .. the great mystery regarding this promotion of small calibers on pig's has been revealed!! it's due to clandestine operations at ghostly hours on another's ranch! small cal ... low noise!

if I use the 210g partition ... what hold over at 300 yards will be required if zero is done at 200 yards ... hav'nt checked the balistics calculater yet ...

Re: Custom pig rifle

this little 35 shoots the 180gr TTSX very well for a hunting bullet zero @ 200
is 9" low at 300 yrds. which on most wild boar at that range would be close to level with its back and you will be putting meat into the freezer
thats if you are shooting in the daylight hours

Re: Custom pig rifle

I work for a firearms distributor, it sounds like you found the perfect rifle. but for those others who may be interested, Remington's LE division makes a left handed .308 parkerized 700 on an HS Precision stock with a 20" fluted heavy barel. it isnt in any of their catalogs, but I know they make them. We have them in stock.

Re: Custom pig rifle

just had a chance to use this little 35 a cpl days ago on a mule deer hunt
i used the 180 TTSX going at 2430 with the gun zeroed at 200 yrds
buck was 190 so no hold over at all. 1 shot and a cpl steps and now its heading into my freezer.
also had a whitetail doe tag and and took 1 of them at 212 yrds with the same results. yes this is way more gun then i would need to do this but this is 1 of the rifles that my best friend just left me when he passed away. i was thinking it would be nice to remember him on 1 more deer hunt.

Re: Custom pig rifle

Hey Porker, I think I would go with the 338 fed. before I went with the win. , after all why get all that xtra kick when it's not needed. Remember you're hunting pigs not grizz. The fed. is a short action round that won't boot ya any more than your 308 and you can put it together in a nice light weight package. Mike
