    Bush Pig

    Hey all. Am after a new bush pig. Needs to be light, suppressed, shoot well. Preferably 308 or 7mm08 etc. Anyone got anything out there???
    Thanks in advance.

    Would a Browning X-Bolt Superlight Carbon in .308 like this suit you?

    https://broncos.co.nz/hunting/firear...erlight-carbon

    I bought it a few months ago but just not using it, getting into some old militaria rifles instead. Factory threaded at 14x1 but you will need to pick up your own silencer. Gerry Veugelaers did are review of them about a year ago. He found it fussy on some projectiles and I found the same. Didn't work as accurately on an old favourite Sierra Gameking 164g HPBT but fantastic on 150g SBT. PM me if your interested.

    Gerry's article was in the NZ Outdoor Hunting Aug/Sep 2018. I can flick you a scan copy of those pages via PM if you want it.
