    My friend was hunting with me and shot a hog at 1722 with my 338 lapua match gun it was crazy! We shot it for 64 moa and on his second shot he blew it off the hole. my program said the bullet was in flight for 3.2 seconds. load was 300 grain smk at 2700 fps. We were going to try and get a picture with it but could not find the field once we started to look for it then it got dark on us. Thats a long way when trying to navigate through the hills of pa at dark.
