Boomsticksandhoglegs says hello to all

Dec 29, 2015
I grew up hunting watersnakes as a kid in North Texas. All I had was a 22cal air pump Benjamin and a stick. Nothing like hunting water moccasins. I hated them far more than I feared them. I was never bit but this hunting began when one tried to go after my dogs puppies. Age 11-12 I was on a mission. Before I turned 13 I had bagged 33 of them. 34 tried to bite my Dad. I saw it before he did and kept him from being bit.

I do not hunt game for sport or meat and I do not care if others do so. I just cannot get excited by hunting any thing that cannot hunt back. I prefer some thing mean and in need of it. Wild Boar hunting has caught my attention. This is way too far away from me to be any thing of a daily routine. Time to take time should be in the near future.

I am interested in one other round out there too. The 358/300Win Magnum. From what I have read it is a very efficient bullet. I already pack the 300 Win Mag so this is no stranger. I have the extra brass to neck up once I have the new rifle built. I was thinking a Remington 700 for this.

My reloading skills are so newbie I go over every thing 3 times and spend days to make a few rounds. I wish I could learn for some one really good at it. I seems to me to be worth paying some one to go to class to learn it right. If that never happens I do know my last reloads were spot on. Keeping the notes and not losing them was my mistake. I had to move a couple times. I may find em one day.

My interests are 308 & 358 Winchester then 300 Win Mag and the 358/300Win Mag these 4 calibers are all I have time to play with. The one round will be all I will feed that rifle. Too many different bullets is too confusing and I wish I had limited my selecting to one a long time ago. I must have twenty different bullet types for one hand gun. When 158gr HP is all that 357 likes. I should have stopped right there.

Feel free to send me notes on these if you wish. I am here to develop just one round selection per cartridge.

165 grain ??????? for 308

180 grain ??????? for 300 Win Mag

200 grain ??????? for the 358 Win --- Wild Boar 20" barrel

225 - 250 gr for the 358/300 Win Mag. TBD
