got one!
not a big one, but the biggest of the bunch
got the place late Friday afternoon and headed out to the blind about 7:30 and we saw a group of hogs feeding in tall grass about 75 yards out, wind in our face

tried to sneak in a little close, got about 10 yards and was lining up on one and cocked the hammer, there were some tiny ones even closer to us we didn't see and heard a snort and then they started running

pulled the trigger, aiming for the neck and hit it, came out through the brush about 50 yards and I let her have another one through the shoulder

first blood with my new 44 and some 255g Keith style hardcasts over 23g of IMR 4227
clean punch through on both shots, first shot hit the throat and second was through both front shoulders and it ran about 10 ft

it's on ice and will get smoked soon

hunted more but saw none

Are you still liking the aimpoint on that 44?  I'm looking for something to put on mine.

yes, absolutely
I was a bit concerned about being able to get on something quickly but that proved not to be a problem :)

not really much to say about terminal ballistics.. both shots were clean pass throughs, breaking the far side leg
honestly didn't do much research, strung it up got it on ice fast and on to the ribs on the pit and beer :)

I did have my 6.8 SPC AR with me and it took a few seconds to decide which to use... the AR I could have probably gotten a few more and had permission to kill as many as I wanted.. but the new gun needed proper testing :)


I will say "I LOVE IT" when asked about the pistol though!

How do you like the 6.8 ? Looks like all camo judging by the muzzle .....Remington?

I love my 6.8!
I load Barnes 110g TTSX and get 2800 FPS
deer and hogs fear it... I use it more than my Sako 270 or Tikka 308

it's got a custom upper from Ar15performance, a stainless fluted 18" barrel, carbon tube
lower is a stag I put together, gieselle trigger, RRA group, ace skeleton stock
optics tend to be changed, here's two configs
camo courtesy of Krylon :)

Nice stick, Coke. The camo is impressive.  
I really liked my Ace stock on my BM.

Looking at the pics, the camo pattern looks like it turned out excellent. Thunbs Up
