    I shot this one at about 75 yards with a .243 100gr soft point (monarch brand), she didn't run. Buddy has a hog problem and we are on a mission to take them out (losing battle). I used a mossberg ATR 100.

    Sounds like a good hunt. Must be nice to have a "problem" with too many pigs. On the private ranch I hunt on there used to be nearly 60 pigs at any given night feeding in an adjacent field from where we would stay (in the lower flats). We would head up high on the hill side very early in the morning (the pigs were bedding up higher on the hill side). Sure enough those pigs would head back from feeding in the flats early in the morning, head to the higher grounds to bed, and we would be right in front of them just picking which big boy we were going to cut off every time. The past two years it has been dry though and there are no pigs at all.

    Congratulations, looks like a nice "eater" there. My hunting buddies and I classify them as "eaters" or "draggers". Draggers feed the wildlife and the eaters feed us. My wife has felled numerous hogs with a .243 it's all about shot placement. Nice pic too.

    Anything that'll take a deer will take a hog and the .243 is a fine deer rifle.

    Good shootin'! Fire up the grill. :D

    Nic sized sow, 243 is an effective round when shots are properly placed. Time to crank up the grill.

    Well done, sir! Consider making sausage, too!

    For you Texans, I'm a Texas Czech, and boy howdy do we like to use that feral hog in our sausages. Waste not, want not!

    Questions about mossberg rifle

    Hi!

    I’m in Portugal and I see you used a Mossberg on the hog. I will soon buy one Mossberg too, in .308 win (model 26252), because they are very inexpensive when compared with our european rifles, but there are some things that I don’t know and would appreciate if you can explain them to me :eek:

    I usually shoot wild boars at night using a benelli argo (I think you call it R1) chambered in 30.06 springfield with a zeiss varipoint 3-12x56 (illuminated), at no more than 100 ou 120 meters away. Can you tell me if the Mossberg is really accurate at that distance or should I expect deviations of more than 5 cm? I’ll be using a meopta 3-12x56 RD on it.

    I would also like to know if I need some bipod adapter to use a Harris bipod on the Mossberg or can I just attach it right out of the box :confused:

    Thanks,
    Fernando


    Ps: Our boars are uglier than yours, lol :D

    More

    Need more than a Oink, here, lolol

    Can I attach a harris bipod directly to the gun or do I have to drill a hole and screw a stud in the stock? Or is there any adapter?:banghead:

    2quqm50.jpg

    Harris bipods are American or British? Christ, does anybody have one? Should I look for other brands?

    The hole

    "The harris bipod attaches to the sling stud."

    On the gun there is only a hole for quick detachable sling swivels (QD). There is no bolt, no stud. Can the harris bipod attach DIRECTLY to that hole in the stock. This hole:

    More bacon, as you call it lol

    I think it will. Going to be close due to the inset (looks like just a little of the hole) But I think it will work. Here piggy piggy OINK

    Bacon

    Crap, lol. I will have to wait for the gun to arrive, then, to look at it carefully and see what kind of hole is that, lol. I’ve ordered the Mossberg in last May and it should get here next month (August). I was thinking of buying a harris tripod from ebay, but I’ll wait another month.

    Thanks, skunyun

    You should get one while the bacon is young…

    Because if you let it get older the bacon can, and probably will, fight back, lololol

    Ok, thanks.

    About the piggy with the bloody nose, I used a federal trophy tip 180 gr and the bullet hit the ribs on the left side, broke is column/spine and stopped by the neck - his head was down as he was eating the corn that I had spread on the land. Shot at about 80 meters, on 2.20 AM.

    Because it was a male, I had to cut his ball off to keep the rest of the meat safe from nasty odours (we cannot move a dead boar with his balls attached, lol).

    And then I gave him a lift home, lol:

    You are fast, no doubt about it, lol. Thanks

    In the second photo there are two steel teeth that probably will grab that hole on the mossberg’s stock. Don’t know if they will grab it securely, tough. When you screw the bipod, those teeth touch each other firmly? Because if not… the gun will get loose

    It’s 16.30h, here. Will leave work now, but later today I will post some photos of my actual pig stick too lololol

    Yeah, it has a screw on the bottom that you tighten after you insert the teeth into the hole. then it pulls it nice and snug. won't fall off. The pigs will love it. they will just lay down bloody nose and all, ionk
    But if you keep using rocks you won't need a bi pod. lol

    Instead of rocks, I think I could kill them with one of my current tripods, because I made them with construction steel, lolol (I cannot weld aluminum).

    As promised, my pig stick, lol:

    ayoo04.jpg

    As it has EAW pivot mounts, quick detachable, I can use several scopes on it. Currently I own a zeiss victory varipoint 3-12x56 (illuminated), a meopta 3-12x56 (illuminated), a Hawke 1,25-4x24 (illuminated) and a Yukon Sentinel 3x60 (Night Vision). All can be attached to the gun in seconds, because all have EAW rings or EAW rail (all use the same base mounts).

    The two 3-12x56:

    The Yukon:

    The Mossberg .308 will use the meopta, with fixed mounts.

    More European wild bacon:

    Thanks for the info on the bipod!
