    Thought this was good shooting. Pig didn't know a thing.

    true. Maybe pop some 3" smoke over the valley.

    Thanks everyone, certainly has taken lots of practice and patience before taking in animals at range. Bullet construction is also very important to get clean kills as the bullet slows right down. I've tried to include a few helpful hints for new shooters in my vids. If you go to my channel and watch them all if be keen on feedback. Cheers. https://youtube.com/channel/UCx-Km_KadkCJXpEfhjJGivQ

    Excellent effort. Best I’ve witnessed was one of my sons head shooting two pigs at 300m with his 300 winmag.

    The pig literally died in his sleep. Good way to go, and good shooting of course.
