That is cool. Congrats.
I took this boar early this morning with my dog Blue. Blue bayed him in a creek bed and I snuck up behind him and dropped him with a single .45ACP to the back of the head. I know it's not a 6.8 kill but as soon as Constructor sends my XT there will be plenty more.

Congrats on the Kill. I do not have the proper priveledges to view but I can imagine.

Nice dog too. Looks like your dog has posed for the camera before.
We are now seeing the gap between red states and blue states widen significantly. At what point do they separate?
Nice hog...and GOOD LOOKING dog.
Law enforcement officers must understand that armed citizens are there to defend them when they are outnumbered…and to outnumber them, if they enforce unconstitutional law.
300 AAC Blackout Chambering Cancelled:
Some time ago, Savage announced it would be chambering the Model 10 Precision Carbine in 300 AAC Blackout. Since that time, we have tested many variants of this cartridge in various barrel lengths and rates of twist. This exhaustive testing left us quite unsatisfied with the accuracy we were able to get from the subsonic loads in this chambering. Accuracy with the lighter, faster loads in this caliber was actually quite good. But we believe the real value in this cartridge lies in the use of subsonic loads for suppressed rifles. Therefore we have decided to scrap the project.
It is our understanding that pushing these heavy, slow bullets presents challenges not found in typical loadings and that our experience is not unique. Subsequently, many in the industry have simply adopted a lower standard for accuracy for these subsonic loads. While this does seem reasonable and we don't criticize any in our industry that have taken this approach, it just won't work for Savage.
Our brand was built on accuracy and we are too protective of our reputation for building the most accurate factory rifles available. We would rather walk away from this opportunity than sell a product that requires an explanation.

What'd you do? Already box up that upper? I'd say it takes more skill the way you did it. Great hunting companion you have there, too.

Actually I have already boxed up the upper. And thanks, Blue is one heck of a dog. He actually jumped in the creek bed with the pig and got tossed right back out. He got lucky because those cutters sliced a big V in my favorite hunting boots when we were getting him out of the creek.
as everyone else said nice hog N dog

Nice hog. Good looking dog also. Nothing wrong with a pistol kill, all fun. I shot one in the ass with a 44 mag as he was running away. The bullet came out of his neck. DRT.
Nice work, especially with the "old reliable" 45ACP.
Talk about stopping power.
