    Ok, as many of you know I have done freelance work with Nikon for almost 10 years now, this is not related to that in any way shape or form! This is all about having a great time trying to reduce the feral swine population. Broke out the new ThOR 4 384 4.5-18 this past weekend and my 19-year-old son immediately "borrowed" it and left me with my old ThOR unit. My son proceeded to dispatch every hog he shot at using the 6.5cm 140 gr ELDX projectiles. I was amazed at the damage these bullets do as you can see from the below headshot at around 200 yards. This unit uses 30mm rings, is lightweight and very easy to use and sight in. I can't wait to get out and use it without my son!

    Thanks! I have an older ThOr on a .223 and it's amazing how tough OK hogs are. The 6.5 CM stops em in their tracks! The Clarity, accuracy, and consistency of the ThOR 4 make headshots easy. I used the old NV enhancers many years ago and then tried out a buddies ATN ThOR years ago, there was no going back after that.

    Good to hear I’ve got an x sight and after that decided I’m gonna go straight to a good thermal. To much wash from brush up close.
