Pig Hunting!

That’s where I’ll be this weekend.

I’m taking a Rem 700 .308 and an AR (might be coyotes too) with a Ruger Blackhawk for backup.

I’ll be trying out some hot .45 Colt loads from Buffalo Bore. 325 gr. at 1325 fps. I think that will hurt a piggy, don’t you?

Pics and updates as I can.

    I think I’m familiar with the pistol loads you’re using, and they are some good thumpers, and penetrate quite well. The recoil has a bit of authority, also, but nothing a person can’t handle.

    If they are less that 300lbs, you can take em with the AR… 🙂

    I know nothing about pig hunting, but IIRC Frank James was not up with eating wild pigs because of the diseases that they can carry. Use caution.

    Happy hunting Alan. Wish I was able to join you!

    (But really, that’s just because I want to see TOTWTYTR all decked out in his Cabelas finest…) 🙂
