Re: Hog meets the 162 Amax

Is it me or is there some bullet glint on the left side of the frame when the shot breaks?

Yeah I noticed it also. I live how still legged the hog goes when he's hit.

Re: Hog meets the 162 Amax

I had to go back and watch it on the large version I have here. I can watch it on a 32" screen frame by frame. The camera was sitting on my right in the blind and I'm on the left. That's actually the bullet in the frame. It's only in one frame and it's really blurry but it's copper color and there is nothing else coming out of that gun that's copper color other than a 162 Amax. Crazy that you guys caught that. I never saw it. The light had to be just right to make that happen. You are seeing a reflection from the sun off of the bullet. I've never seen it that close before. I have actually caught the projectile in a frame before though. I have a shot on a hog from two years ago were you can see the actual projectile in flight for two frames. Not the bullet trace. The video is so nasty I never put it on the net. Basically the 285g bullet goes through the ribs and blows it's back leg off. Baby piglets in the road etc. It's a bad deal.

Meet Obadiah. Obadiah does not play well with others.

Take note of that fine specimen in the middle. It was too ugly to let walk. Not me the deer..........

Re: Hog meets the 162 Amax

I would like to see you get 2 of them lined up and dropped at once!

Re: Hog meets the 162 Amax

I shot the hog with "Precious" (my 284) I gave the hog to some of the ranch hands so I never saw the inside. The shot was only around 200. I didn't even range it because there was no need at that distance.

Triple shocks are the way to go for the 2 in 1 shot. An Amax will never make it.

    I've done the twofer on a few smaller pigs this year with the 162's but the damage on the second never seems to be enough to anchor them at impact.

    Jered, how fast are you pushing the 162's out the 284 win?

    Come on now. You are the one that owes me $100. I told you it would go threw it and it did. Nothing will with the plate tilted on an angle.


    JDB,
    I slowed them down to 3500 to keep them in one piece.

    That 7/338 lapua is a bad dude though!
