    I guess I'll try and get the thread back on track. Today is opening day of CA. A zone deer for rifle. I didn't want to spook anything that may cross my path by shooting a lowly pig so I went out yesterday morning. This is about 100+ yds with my trusty Ruger American Ranch .223/5.56. That's the caliber that guys say won't drop a pig. I say they are wrong. It's about an inch off the ear and out through the off side shoulder. Barnes 62 gr. with a little powder behind it.

    He’s back!

    When did you get paroled? I thought you had another 4 months on your sentence?

    uses ar15 lower/upper, bolt, carrier... everything. you can literally screw on a 300 hamr barrel to a 223/556 and hit the ground hunting. i use 300 blackout mags from pmag and lancer because i think they work better for 30 cal, but that's just me.
