My long-suffering bride and hunting partner for the past 30+ years went out with me this afternoon late.

After passing on an opportunity at a handsome mainframe 8 that was chasing a doe, she absolutely hammered this old sow with my 6mm/.223. A perfect heart shot, the sow dropped in her tracks like she was struck by lightning.

This is one of a number of reasons why I don't give my wife any trouble...

Several observations:

Having a life long partner that will not only go with you to the field to shoot animals, but also shoot them herself, is something to be cherished.

Ridding the world of wild swine is always a worth while endeavor. You will see more handsome mainframe 8s on your place if your wife keeps hammering sows.

I have an AR in 6mm/223 With a 20 inch McGowen Barrel and it is definitely a step up in pop from the standard .223.

Great Job!

Just my .02,

Ah, another true believer in the 6x45!

I started using this cartridge back in the early '90s because I wanted a combo that would take a deer or hog at 150-200 yards and still kill a turkey at 50 yards without turning it to jelly. The 2400-2500 fps muzzle velocity of my 100 grain loads does exactly this...and it has accounted for many deer, hogs and turkeys.

Best of continued luck with yours!

No question. She shut down a whole hoglet assembly line with one well placed shot!
