    I took my wife Terry out yesterday to get in a little range time before taking her hog hunting today...

    This is Terry's "Baby Rifle" - A T/C Contender carbine in 7mm TCU...

    The bullet of choice is Sierra's 160 gr. B.T.-H.P. Game King...

    3-shot groups averaged 7/8" or less at 150 yds...

    Terry's BIG PIG - 500 pounds worth!!!


    I shot the little guy, just for the grill. It was only 60 lbs...

    I'm gonna have a European skull mount of Terry's Hog and I'll post a picture of that, once we get it back....

    Good to see that one out of the gene pool! I sure hope you don't plan to eat that nasty thing though.....

    Wow that thing is huge. On a sidenote, why so many scope rings on her gun? Did you have problems with it sliding under recoil with just 2? Im not judging - Ive just never seen that setup before, so Im curious.

    Wow. A pig with dreadlocks! I've never seen that before.

    Are those scope rings are good enough to merit a second pair, or what's going on there?

    A 7 TCU doesn't kick at all. Must be a too small scope or a bunch of rings that are too large .

    Got a 10" 7mm TCU barrel I've not used since I was shooting IHMSA with it. But, my .30-30 from a 12" barrel ain't broke. :D

    Big pig. I'd eat the little one and have that big, fugly head mounted for the wall. :D Buzzards probably won't mind eating the rest.

    I could not keep the scope from slipping in the rings with one set, so I added a second set and lightly dusted the bottom halves of the rings with rosin. That scope has not moved since....

    That hog did not smell near as bad as what we thought it would...

    The small piggy went on the grill and the big hog will be ground and made into sausage....

    Firstly congrats to your wife on an awesome pig.

    Dude you gotta get that scope sorted, a set of decent fitting blued rings will make a huge difference to the performance and then appearance. You say there is no recoil, this makes it a big problem as 6 rings to hold a scope when there is no recoil? It is a question of time before the scope moves again and it will probably be on a hunt.
