Re: Marlin .460 410grs

Have to admit that it took quite some time measuring the chamber,bore and all the various dummies i made to ensure proper fit and cyclingreliability just to fill out the "designpage" properly. But when all the measurements are done it really means nothing if the machinist isn`t up to the t...

Re: Marlin .460 410grs

Use the meat just as i would on regular "farm-pigs". The meat has got much lower % of fat though.
Will be getting the testresults from a lab regarding "tricinosis?-worms" tomorrow so no tasting of the meat before that...
Hawg weighed 130kg.

Re: Marlin .460 410grs

Was invited to a combined Moose and Roedeer-hunt and managed to bag this doe. Shot the doe at an appr distance of 35yards. The doe was "driven" HARD by my black dog. My fellow hunters were amazed of the "little cowboy-rifle and its boolits" leathality and especially the extreme a...

Re: Marlin .460 410grs

Our wildhawgs are runnaways/released from "fenced properties" in the 70`s and 80`s. No one knows how many we got but estimates run from 200 000 to 500 000. We had a real "killerwinter"(3ft snow and -10 to -30celcius) from dec to mars but that didn`t seem to stop the growth of the...
