I used FMJ to punch through the boney shield. If you shoot through the ribcage hollow points are good but that's if you don't mind breaking the ribs. I prefer to have them intact for barbeque.Hog hunting, that is on my bucket list. Did you use soft points, FMJ, or hollow points.
we have plenty of hogs but they are the two legged kind, LOLI've watched a ton of hog hunting videos and it looks like something I'd like to do but here in North NJ, there are none as far as I know. The NJ Hunting & Trapping Digest mentions feral hogs being in Gloucester County area though.
Bueno! Nice.My Mini 30 bagged two boars. One was perfect barbque size. Man that 7.62x39 packs a punch. Dropped both of them where they were standing with shoulder shots. Got clean pass throughs. It really smacks them. Its fun to shoot too. Effective range is 200 yards.
Hey MrJimRuger - Watch a bunch of hog hunting videos on YouTube and you'll be wanting to get out there and hunt them. I just started hunting this fall and while my son took two squirrels, I got zip! He's going for deer tomorrow (Youth Day here in NJ). As far as hogs, they're only hunting them in South Jersey. I'd go for it if I had the chance!I'm a shooter and not a hunter...but do feel like I would really like hog hunting instead of the "sitting in a tree stand waiting for a buck" thing......sounds like a great time!
Burris FastFire III, in a Burris "Picatinny Protector" mount. The Fastfire is just about perfect on a Mini. It is tiny, weighs less than an ounce, great battery life, and dot is easy to see, even for my 58 year old eyes. At $230, it is a "mid range" dot, a step above the cheapies, but not as spendy as the Aimpoint micros, Deltapoints, etc.we have plenty of hogs but they are the two legged kind, LOL
Sandog, which red dot is on your mini? How do you like it?
