Only the smart pigs survive, the rest are in the freezer. But then you're taking moving or running shots, so that sweet spot behind the ear is gone. I have had faster drops with the AK round that even a .308 I guess big and slow expends all the energy, instead of passing thru.
Actually the larger of the two in the picture above was shot free hand with me standing in the middle of a wheat field. The smaller took one shot behind and below the ear.

The larger took one behind to the heart on the run, and was anchored with a second behind and bellow the ear.

Yes it is, with the single set trigger. Damn that trigger is sexy!

I'm in far north Texas about 50mi SW of Wichita falls. Those two were killed aobut four miles due east of town.

OK. I grew up near Lawton, Ok. Born in Pampa, Tx. and now live in Ardmore, Ok.

I agree, regarding the single-set trigger! I wish every rifle had that feature. Combined with their inherent out-of-the-box accuracy, the single-set trigger makes the CZs some fine shooting production rifles.

Ahh, we have another member here who's from Ardmore. We were going to try and get together last week to do some shooting but he had some family issues pop up.

If you look at a map, I'm about 90 miles almost due south of Altus in Baylor county.

Are you allowed, by chance, to say who the other person from here in Ardmore is? Just curious if I know them.
