I wanted to share my adventures this past weekend on a hog hunt with my brand new .458 Quackenbush air rifle. I bought it on Friday, scoped it on Saturday and killed the boar on Sunday. I got into PCP(precharged pneumatics) airguns last year when I bought a .22 Korean made Sumarta capable of producing 50 to 70 foot pounds with a 21 or 32 grain pellet. That's 22 short ballistics and 100 yard shots on squirrels makes for great pest control. Now I've moved up to the big boys and bought a .458 Quackenbush LA Outlaw air rifle capable of producing 500 foot pounds using 3000 psi of air. Be it powder or air, this gun produces .45Colt ballistics that has a proven track record for the last 100 years. Here's what a .458 Quackenbush air rifle can do with a 265 grain BHD ammo at 38 yards on a 330 lbs. wild boar. I was able to get close and shadow a large group of 15 to 20 for 75 yards until I was able to tree hop and get withing 30 yards of them. I ended up being pinned down as they moved all around me and getting within 20-25 yards of me at times for over an hour. There was an even larger boar than this one that I never could get a shot at. Half the group was positioned on top of a small mound blocking my view and my chance of approaching closer for a shot at the ones just behind them. This one that I killed moved into view and I took a 38 yard shot. He went about 30 yards to lay up. I ended up pushing him another 30 yards. I was able to get within 10 yards to take a finishing shot. Then the fun began of trying to drag him out. That should be a sight since my friends came to help drag and filmed me trying to drag the hog by myself. I got about 5 yards. What a beast this hog was!!! BHD makes some DANDY BOOLITS!!!! I'm lucky enough that he lives in my town and he talked me into getting a big bore air rifle. Trophy Photos - Big Bore Airgun Ammo There are other photos on his website.
