Picked up some of the 170 gr. Fusion JSP for my 308 today.

I was told if I hit a Pig in through ears it will drop it in it's tracks. Post some pic's when we get back.

Also picked up a Mako Group, Swiveling Grip Pod for my SR556 and some Silver Tip so I am considering trying that out also. Albert will have a 8mm to back it up if it doesn't do the job right.

No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!

Have you tried..

The .308 TAP rounds? I'm a big fan. I've shot deer and pigs with them, and never had to track one. I can only get the 155 gn here, but want some of the 168's.

Ronin, TAP 308

yeah, want but not handy right now. Best groups yet with the 168 TAP.

I was popping Bowling Pins out at 550 yards holding over and it was kinda pissing off this guy shooting a 700 rem that was shooting 150 some Surplus.

Tried to explain to him the huge difference between the ammo, but he figured his Rifle cost enough that it should out shoot my rifle with any ammo...

people are odd..

Big Pig's

From what I've been told there are some seriously large ones on this lease.

Deer, if they hit 150 they are considered abnormal... sooo

I can get the TAP from Tasso but I won't be up to his shop before leaving so I'll use the FUSION.

I also have some Nato Ball 308, I want to see what it does with a forehead shot, but will try it out on a dead one. Don't want to knock one silly and have it run off and die somewhere we can't find it.

Same with the Silver Tip 223, want to check the actually results on a full on head shot and possibly through the chest side to side.

This should be interesting, Albert is my brother in law on my wifes side. Married my wifes sister after they met when he moved her from Canada. He is from Poland and did time in the Russian Army years back. He actually spent two years in Afghanistan before they ran the USSR out of there.

should be interesting, Albert in the woods trying to sneak up on game should be funny. He is about 6 foot and 290 - 310 lbs or some such. For some reason I don't seem his as being the sneakable type!

lol

I hope this dang front passes through pretty fast because it might not be in the teens or under down here. But, anything below 50 after living in Florida for anytime sure as hell feels like it is in the Teens!

brr
