    But for now I'm going to stick with the .22 mag and .300 BLK for pigs

Sorry, I sort of rambled there, but that's how info gets passed---just talking about it.
    Good point Country Road! You've written about that 7mm-08 a lot and always have good advice.

    Well Jimbo, that first part is correct. But I've seen a few dumb questions on F&S before, lol!

    You make a good point and I've seen it in action over at F&S too.

    Definitely. I am probably one of the youngest and least experienced of the regulars users here, but even I would probably know some things a new hunter wouldn't.
