As I said before, "The most fun you can have with your clothes on! Killed hogs with every gun I brought. 20th year hunting this area. Everything went great except that 35 Remington Hornady RN 200gr. Hit 3 hogs perfectly and they all ran off like nothing happened as evidenced in the video of hog shot between the cattle. I'm not used to that. Might try 200gr FTX next year.

Nice tusker.
I have taken a mountain of hogs in northern Cali. way back when you could actually hunt with lead.
The M1A SOCOM 16 & Armalite AR-10 (T) 16" were my 'go-to' rifles.
Where's the helicopter?

Apparently I don't need a helicopter! I also can't afford one, not even a 1/2 hour ride in one.

The scout squad M1A and my Aero M5 with Hornady Amax drop them really good. Best fast action hog guns within 300yds.

Congratulations on a great hunt. Thank you for posting this. Thank you for all the great pictures.
You bet. Glad everyone can join in the fun a little.

Also a big thanks to everyone posting to this thread. I don't get the opportunity for all the hunts I'd like to take, so I live vicariously through youtube and forums. (Especially the African safaris)

I have used both those bullets in my Marlin model 336 in 35 rem. I stopped using the RN when I found it was too tough to expand well in my 35 rem. The FTX bullet is softer and opens up better and is my go to bullet for that gun. I haven't used it on pigs yet but it kills whitetails well. I use my 458 SOCOM for wild pork. It's too much fun.
