A friend stopped by the taxidermist today, saw my boar in the works, said it is huge and beautifully ugly!

The Marlboro stuff will be gone when he is finally done, I hope!

Even has his nose pierced.  Definitely ugly but in a good way for a boar I guess.

He died of lead poisoning, very bad way to die!

Some of the lead was indeed in the lungs.

The teeth are coming soon, another photo will follow (better quality) when the work is done.

Actually the Marlboro scraps could be realistic if he was rooting around in a trash pile. They really like to shred things. Can't wait to see the finished product. I don't think my wife would allow a Boar mount in the living room.

Yea, this is what remains of the big boar that fell to the 6.8.

I have his skull in my office (it's a big skull), so now I finish the outfit.

He was a good hunt.

Very Cool RC!

Im curious you never did say what it was about the 6.8 you did not like?.  Maybe Im mistaken but did you not replace it for a 308??

Given that most of my hunting is done from moving positions, off hand shots; the 6.8 hit him about .75 inches too far back, nicked his spine but didn't hit the cord.  The bullet is about 100 grains moving at about 2700 FPS.  My complaint is that the bullet is too small to for the big boars (for 200 ppounds or so, it is more than adequate.)  I moved to a .308 because, with that gun, I am firing a 175-grain bullet moving about 2650 FPS.

For deer or home defense or many, many other tasks, the 6.8 is a great gun, much better than a 5.56 - no question.  For hunting big pigs, it isn't ideal unless you are hunting from a fixed position with support and can take your time on the shot.  Granted, an AR10 off hand is allot to negotiate, but i am more confident with a 308 that a miss by .75 inches will still put the thing down hard.

I liked my 6.8, in some ways i regret selling it; but for my purposes the 308 is about ideal.

(You may want a gas buster for your 6.8, mine was way overgassed.)

Thanks for explaining that RC, my wife Kathy loves that 6.8 and its easy to shoot as well. I can see now though why you choose going with the 308. Go get those Pigs!!!
