I am still deciding on what way to go also. I have every thing but the barrel out now. I still am leaning towards 300 BLK.

Tried it, took a little work to get it to run, enjoyed it for a while, then sold it to try 300BLK.

What do you think on the accuracy, and is it capable of hunting?

Don't you mean the "BOOM BOOM" Car?

That was an early morning wasn't it!

12 hogs @ 125 yards out.....BOOM...... and they made a clean getaway! Damn pigs.

Don't worry, we'll get 'em in October!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

450 Bushmaster. It'll stop any hog that ever lived and the ammo is easier to find and less expensive than the 458 SOCOM or 50 Beowulf. Amazingly accurate as well.

That morning/day/night was an adventure I'm glad I was a part of, and hope that we can partake in again.

Good things come to those who wait, and October, the wait ends.
