So if you recall a couple weeks ago I went out to set up a camera and ended up shooting a wild hog with my AR-15. It was a direct hit and the hog went down; but between the less-than-ideal .223 cartridge and my poor bullet choice it wasn't enough and the hog got up and ran away as I was looking to shoot a second hog. No exit wound, no blood. Whatever.

Anyways...yesterday I went back out to retrieve pictures from the camera and this time took my Mosin Nagant loaded with some 150gr Hornady SST. A higher power must be looking out for me because AGAIN, a group of hogs came trotting out into the open where I was at...just as I stood up and was about to walk out. So I shot a big one from about 35-40 yards away with dedushka and the hog dropped like a bag of concrete and never got back up. This was the first time I've taken the ruski out...74 years old and still killin.

Sure is nice to shoot a pig with an old open site rifle.

Yes it is!...It just feels right. And a lot easier to tote around than my scoped rig.

Isn't that illegal to shoot them with a rifle that old and no scope? cheers

Yeah, are you allowed to use a rifle that's older than you are?

Oh wait, I've killed a dozen hogs or so with a .303 Enfield . . .

I'm a lot more comfortable with rear blade sights instead of the ghost ring peep type.

303 Enfield...nice! My Mosin was made in 1942. I really want an M1 Garand someday since both my Grandfathers carried them; one in WWII and the other in Korea.

LOL.

Good shooting with your Mosin Nagant. This rifle was made to kill, and it does it well. A million dead Germans can't be wrong. up
