.50/70 Hog

Post by Darryl » Wed Sep 21, 2011 6:51 pm

I killed this hog this past Sunday with my LoneStar Rolling Block.
His left side is the exit side - As you can see, I hit him badly - far back. The shot was freehanded at 65-70 yards as he was walking up a dam of a cattle tank. I had no time to really aim, just sights on and drop the hammer. The sound of that .350" meplat hitting him was like somebody whacking a rubbermaid garbage can with a 2x4.

He ran about 125 yards into the heavily wooded creek area and expired.

Darryl, the .50-70 is a hammer. Ask Bill Cody.

I sure like the looks of Rolling blocks. I have got to get mine together this winter. MD

Nice going, Darryl. Now that it is starting to cool off they will start to move a bit during daylight hours and we can start working on them again. Shoot straight, rdnck.

Good going!

That porker is just the right size for the spit over a charcoal fire :)
I would like to go after one some day.
