I've been shooting these things for a LOOOOOOONNNNNNGGGGG time.
This was a first. Literally blew entire shoulder and arm off.
(Yes it was at 40 yards but still....)

Dang that’s some damage! I wasn’t sure how those new LRHT would expand with the closed meplats they have. I guess they sure opened up on that hog lol.

I'm a Texas and Oklahoma pig hunter. Generally leased land, stands, and feeders. Over the years friends have tried everything from who can get the most with one shot on a feeder trough so the pigs line up to long distance shooting.

I've seen failures using Sierra match king bullets. The bullets aren't made to stay together. Jacket and core. I haven't justified thermal video optics yet. LOL us poor folk still use green laser illuminators

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
