    A Boy, A Pig, And some Porn

    Finally after breaking in the C/W barrel on the new Hardy custom 6.5 06, twas time for the real thing. So I worked up some loads and took the rifle and the grand boy (aka "mate") for a walk last night
    Left the hut around 7 ish and drove 5 mins up on to the creek flats. Hadn't long been walking when I spotted a couple of hinds at 340yds accross the gully. Was thinking seriously about the option when I was advised that they probably got a fawn stashed somewhere so best we be leaving them.
    So we carried on a bit when a few goats took off from in front of us but we sort-of have a rule that goat shooting is best kept for walkin back to the truck, not away from it. Anyway, bit further and 2 small pigs burst out from about 20 feet in front of us causing my mate to nearly shit himself. I noticed he picked up a rock and carried that for about 5 minutes before deciding it wasnt worth the hassle, even though he had his 222 over his shoulder anyway.
    Bit further, and out on a sheep camp was a black sow. Got him into position, told him to remember to squeeze the trigger, and the rest is history
    The picture says the rest

    Bloody great Tahr
    Used 20 Rounds to break-in the barrel as per Hardys recipe, then 5 to sight it in
    Cleaned all the copper out, and from 5 shots had the first shot a flyer to the left, and the remaining 4 group at .390"
    Bit more pissing around, but pretty impressed so far
