Three for two. You can't really expect that much, certain can't expect better. Good job.

You're not helping the economy. Use more bullets.

I'd a hit the deer AND both hogs with one round of .308. You're being wasteful. :smilelol5: "rlol"

During the Great Depression my Dad was required to always line up at least two animals before shooting AND if he didn't line up with a tree to recover the bullet he got whupped!!! 'least that's the way he told it. :biggrinjester:

Nice shooting! :tiphat:

BTW, I forgot to ask.... What was your rifle setup, and what ammunition were you using? I've been trying to build a good hog load for my M1A. I'm about to test some loads built on a 165 grain G-Max.
