The dearth of hogs continues with few hogs being sighted over more than a dozen properties repeatedly surveyed. Ben and I managed 3 confirmed sows and I managed an addition unconfirmed hog down as well. Druid Hill Armory sent me some new ammo to test, 100 gr. Lapua Scenar. I had not seen anybody else having tried this for hog hunting, so I am not sure what to expect, but the velocity is excellent at 2780 fps. I am also very happy to be fielding a new headlamp from Acebeam that is impressively brighter than the Nightcore I was using. I will be mentioning this light in future hunts as well as I get familiar with its capabilities.
Special thanks to Lone Star Armory and their Multi Purpose Carbine, Enhanced (6.5 Grendel/.264 LBC) that was sighted with an IR Hunter MKIII 60mm.
Adam Dines graciously provided the Scenar bullets for testing.
