    Went out with some guys I went to school with, one of them just happens to be Kevin Cram of Montour County Rifles, And another JUDD from this site as well. I had a Blast! These guys are very skilled marksman and great guys!
    We only killed one Hog, but they killed a bunch of rocks! I never would have believed the stuff these guys can do with a gun, if I wouldn't have seen it for myself!
    Shane and Kevin were shooting rocks and dirt clumps the size of soft balls at 1013 +/- with scary regularity. And Shane made a awesome 467yd head shot on a standing hog, with his Yellow Russo stocked M.C.R 6m.m.-284. We Chrono'ed my .260 as soon as we got there so Kevin could get me some Come-ups on his PDA and before I knew it I was on deck looking at a 685yd shot, would have been my furthest yet but wind,nerves or elevation got me! I missed by a couple inches,
    Would have made a great 100th round out of the gun but maybe next time! Like next Thursday!![​IMG]

    When you get good at making head shots on hogs, then come out west and make some head shots on dogs :D

    Sounds like you guys had a good time.... as usual :)

    500 yard head shots and near misses at 685 yards is something to behold.

    I think I see the Corian monster in one of the pictures...

    Keep up the good work boys, and report back after next weeks events..

    Buck Horn truck stop off of 80? I stop there the Friday morning after Thanksgiving at about 2:00 AM for breakfast. I'm on my way from Iowa to Sullivan County deer hunting. Alot of good times over the last 37 years.
