Not long range, but still fun.

Not long range, but still fun.

Just got back from my Uncle's place. He's got a small ranch and is always after me to come kill pigs. Got this one at 142 yards with a 7mm rem mag 150gr Core-lokt. From the best place to set up with the most visibility, it's only 250 yards to the treeline, and most shots are 100-150 yards right where the hogs pop out of the tall brush. At those distances, the 7mm puts 'em down like the hammer of Thor and I have yet to have a hog take more than two steps before rolling over.
