    Yea its a fun caliber. Only problem is the girlfriend likes shooting it also, makes it so even reloading isnt saving me money.

    +1 CL60Cruiser on the rifle barreled 12 gauge w/sabot slugs. Copper solids are great, I personally just switched from the rem accutips to the hornady SSTs bc the accutips don't penetrate all the way through so it doesn't leave a blood trail on a lung shot (in case u can't take the neck shot). I like the speed of the accutips and the SSTs (300 grains at 2000 fps will knock down just about anything within 150 yds)

    Tenderibs- I don't think that hog was 500 lbs. big fat ass pig but I dont think 500.

    Estimating this one I shot at about 225-250 lbs. 3 inch cutters. How's that for a wound channel

    Yep.. People say that once they get over a certain weight the meat tastes too gamey. But if you soak the meat (before deboning)from the big ones in ice water and vinegar (or some type of acidic fruit juice) for a couple days(drain and repeat a couple times throughout the process) it takes the gamey taste out of the meat leaving the natural pork flavor. Wild pork is much leaner than domestic pig meat so u have to be careful cooking it. Under cook it and u run the risk of parasites/bacteria. Over cook it and its too tough, and chewy. I gut, skin, quarter, and debone the meat myself. When I debone it, I cut the extra fat and tendons off leaving me with a bunch of 2-6 oz chunks of meat. brown sugar, meat tenderizer, BBQ sauce, and a bit of fat free Italian dressing makes a great rub/marinade. Add cayenne if u want some heat.
