    I've switched things around a little, but the bolt gun remains my daytime hog killer. I have acquired a 300 BLK onto which I've mounted a Photon NV scope. It's now the 'short range night weapon' for after sundown. I do plan to acquire a thermal weapon sight later this year, and I plan to mount it on the AR-10. The AR-10 is heavy, but I use a shooting stick and it puts things down with authority. I'm hoping to use it to better effect on running hogs at night. But, as I like to say — "The best laid plans …"

    150 gr Federal Vital Shok Nosler ballistic tip .308 in an AR10 is what my buddy uses. Dead nuts accurate round...

    I used a PMC Bronze 147 FMJ on this feller. He did not go anywhere.

    I've been shooting the Hornady American White Tail 150 interlocks. 18 bucks a box and shoots 1/2" out of my bolt gun. Just like any other bullet. If you don't hit bone they will run. I think I'll use that.

    That's what I use on deer great load I picked up 6 more boxes at Gander on close out for $14 recently. Great deals to be had in there right now! If you have a Gander in your town go raid the ammo shelves....if there is any left.
