I was out working on the window of one of the blinds when, what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a solitary boar working his way toward my location. He was 80-90 yards away and busily rooting around as he went along. I had my 6PPC with me, loaded with one of my hand loads of 58 grain Hornady VMAX, 28 grains of I-8208, and a CCI BR-4 primer to set the whole thing in motion. This is not my favorite hog gun; I prefer something .30 caliber and up, so decided to wait him out, let him get as close as possible to make sure I could put the bullet exactly where I wanted to, and, at about 50 yards, I put the cross hairs on his left eye and pulled the trigger. He dropped like a ton of bricks; no squealing, very little kicking. I had my Judge on my hip, all loaded up with some rather stout .45 Colt loads, so I got down out of the blind and walked out to end his kicking, but by the time I got there, he had checked out. Called H for H and within 30 minutes a guy showed up, loaded the hog, shook my hand, and took off! I'm hoping that some needy families will wind up having a bit better holiday season by getting their bellies full of fresh pork!

Good job!

Every single pig killed represents (potentially) several hundred 'future' pigs. So each one counts!

Proud of ya!

Flint.
