MOA Maximum, 14" barrel, chambered in 308 Win.  
Hornady TAP Ammo (168 grain A-Max).
I think this is the first time I have ever used factory ammo on a game animal.

That is awesome. My next gun will be in a 7wsm in one of those handy dandy specialty pistolas.

Awesome. But it may me hard to conceal for a carry piece.

Thanks guys.  It was a fun hunt for sure.
I was using the new HD BOG-POD by BOG-GEAR, combined with a little attachment called the Sargent Sniper Rest (Not a BOG-GEAR product). Since the SSR is so short and if you are using a bi-pod in conjunction with it (That is the key-Also don't use a pod-loc).
It is a little slow on the set-up though. I also use Bog-Gear's PSR top with this tripod for handgun.
The PSR pans a lot easier but is not as rock solid like the SSR is when used with the BOG-POD and bi-pod.
Out to 300-450 both will work great. I have taken hits on steel out to 600 using the PSR top.


During the hunt, I kept having to rotate the tri-pod as the doe was moving (with the SSR), since the back leg must come straight back for it to be used the way we set it up. The other two legs have to be at 3 & 9 O'Clock for it to be rock steady, since the bi-pod legs have to be up against the front of the Bog-Gear Bog-Pod legs.
I will post some pics once I get USB drive from my hunting buddy. He took all the pics and it will be easier to see what I am talking about.

500+ yard shots from the sitting position are very doable with this set-up.
I may take it out to a grand on steel (BOG-POD with Sargent Sniper Rest attachment) in the future just to show how steady it is.

I like the AMax for deer and antelope.
The 178 should work great on pigs.

Here is a video from last year.  Not great quality, but using an older version of the Eliminator.

Welcome.
I should have mentioned when it comes to A-Max on game, I have used the 6.5 140 grain (6.5-284), 162 grain 7mm (7mm SAUM and 7 WSM), and then the 168 30 cal (308 Win).
My hunting buddy has more experience with the 168 grain 308 Winchester and has taken a number of animals with it and is very pleased.
