Black powder warthog hunt

A couple of weeks ago I managed to get my first kill with my black powder. The hunt was in South Africa (Eastern Cape). Rifle is Pedersoli Mortimer Whitworth in .451

The rifle has peep sights which posed quite a challenge on the hunt. While the sights where great on the range where I had a clear contrasting target, they where really difficult to hunt with (Live and learn). Hit the pig a little far back, but a 500gr mini at just under 1300fps did the trick. Range was approximately 70 yards off sticks. Smallish pig (approx. 60 pounds) but was real happy with my first kill.

Busy changing sights to a ghost ring sight.
