I went to the range last week and was shooting Federal 30-06 Spring Barnes® Triple-Shock® X Bullet® 165 grain. I ended up shooting a group at 100 yards somewhere between a 50 cent and a quarter. I had shot about 50 rounds and had only used a bore snake. I was just recently told that was not going to cut it as far as cleaning it. I cleaned it this week with some sweets and shooters choice. I will never make that mistake again. I plan on going an shooting it again with a week or 2 just to make sure I still have a good group with it.
Well I knew I had posted asking for help before I got my rifle and wouldn't you know it I couldn't find it cause it was under a different name lol. Well after so much time waiting for the chance to draw blood with it I ended up drawing blood 3 times within a week. Here is some pictures of a couple of the pigs I harvested.
Hunting is not usually a pursuit where instant gratification abounds. It takes a lot of time, practice, resources and patience to be a successful hunter. So when someone decides that an area they hunted only once without taking an animal is worthless and devoid of game, I don't quite understand it. These people usually jump from game management unit to game management unit; trying a new one every year.
Now don't get me wrong, there are people that just enjoy scouting and hunting...
