2017 Wild Hog kills

  • After losing 3 wounded boars due to the fragility of the 162 grain Eld X (exploding before going through the hard skin of these creatures at close ranges 100-120m) I decided to change the ammunition, had an old express core lokt box and the results have been very different, although they are not the ones that have given me the best results but at least do not disintegrate so easily.

    First night shoot 2, the biggest of the herd and another of the largest ones.


    Recovered one bullet



    Second night


    Third night


    This is all for now, I hope this is just the beginning of the season.

  • Good shooting! Good eating too. Once again, unglamorous cup and core gets the job done.

    Timin' has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance.


  • Plenty of meat in the freezer now :wink: Well, I have a permission to control the population so that they do not become a big problem, although at the moment they are not excessive here.

    Last night, 120m head shot, federal fusion 150g, fell on his shadow.

    If there are ANY of them there...then they are excessive. They reproduce faster than rabbits.

  • 308 semi or bolt?

  • We do not allow them overpopulated in our small zone :smirk: .

    7mm RM Mauser 96 stright pull bolt :wink:

  • @toni Looks like a lot of fun,I bet they taste good to.

  • They are becoming more and more elusive but this one made a mistake :wink:


  • Last night, when I was going to the feeder heard some noises, I was late the boar was already there so I unfolded the tripod and took the shoot standing. Recovered the bullet, I'm liking this ammo, solid core and reliable expansion (Federal fusion 150g).
