I want an RPG, but am having a hard time finding one. For now, it remains the JP LRP 07 with the Night Force and night vision equipment.

I have a AAC 300 blackout with a YHM 30 cal can. Only thing I'd add would be some thermal optics.

How does that light work out for you? That's something I've been looking at.

Sako 25-06 with Leupold 4-12x50 VXR (illuminated reticle) and Wicked Hog Light.

Unfortunately, it's a hog virgin (so far), but I'm trying again this week. Two shots, two deer this winter (me & grandson).

I have both the Wicked and XLR250 lights. The Wicked is a bit brighter but both will light up a tree line well over 100 yards away good enough to pick your spot on the animal.

That's super cool. I'm definitely going to have to get one of those lights. I usually shoot a .223 AR or .308 bolt rifle for hogs but I've been thinking about a .25-06.

I think an AR10 or FN SCAR in .308 is just about the ultimate hog gun. Put a Thermal or NV on top and you could cause some DJones style carnage.

I agree, I think I'm going to try to find an R-25. I don't know if I'll do a thermal though. I'm mad at em but probably not that much!

The 458 is a great hog gun. I like the 300 gr TTSX and the 405 gr jsp. Its great in the brush. I have shot several hogs through some pretty thick stuff. This is my second 458. I have a 16" carbine and this 12.5" pistol. I use the pistol more. There is almost no velocity loss with the pistol.

Are you crazy? Bringing in a bull barrel to a hog hunt. It's heavy... Thought I was the only one that hunts with a bull barrel. Mine is roughly 14lbs. We both crazy lol. All we need now are cans to muffle out death:)

Glad y'all like lugging the heavy ones around, kinda like me...



My .308 is around 12 lbs. when hog-ready. Add a 'can and the weight will be north of, well...ridiculous. I really should get it threaded, though. cheers

my current rig, also have a POF 6.8 with N750 installed:





I use an L3 Thermal-Eye X150 thermal monocular for spotting...

but my ultimate rig would be a 60hz high resolution thermal scope and the thermal monocular for spotting
