240 lbs of crop raiding bacon.

Collected with 1 round of 64gr GD from a .223 Rem to the head at 110 yards. 

Farmer took me out to where I’ll be culling deer this week with agricultural permits. We saw a herd of pigs. So, I let him shoot a few with my .223 Rem after we snuck up in them. This one was the first he shot. Dropped him. He hit two others, but they made it into the tall corn. He just texted me and said the buzzards are circling the corn like a plague. Must be some pulled pork sandwiches in there baking. 

Going back this week to lessen the crop raiding deer population.

    I know the temp here, and it’s got to be warmer there. I’d imagine those pigs will be “done” in short order...

    Any chance you can recover a Gold Dot or two to see how it performed?

    Not out of these. But, I’ll try to get one in the future for you.

    I was thinking the upcoming deer would be easier to retrieve anyway ... I am wondering above how the 64gr GDs since that’s what’s in my HD carbine.

    Tell your farmer buddy "nice work", followed immediately by "don't go downwind"
