Got a few piggies the last couple days. I lost two, had to use a .22 magnum, had cataract surgery a couple of weeks ago. No boomers for a little while. It’s amazing to have a clear scope and one crosshair again.

Nice work on the pigs. Glad you are getting your shooting eye back. Just don't rush things too hard.

You must be a "stunt shooter" ...I've had a couple dozen Texans tell me you can't kill hogs with anything smaller that a .243 or .270


I'm gonna re-educate a couple of them next week with my .222

It will kill deer too, boy killed several with it, he was 8. Pigs are easy to kill. I’ve killed a bunch with a bow.

I've been using my CZ 527 in .223 for pigs. The 50 grain Nosler ballistic tip at about 3200 FPS does a number on the heads of pigs. Makes their eyes bug out! LOL!

Wish we had piggies where I live but it will never happen. Going to have to try going for them someday.
