Pig and Bear gun
09/29/19 at 20:44:49
 

http://castboolits.gunloads.com/showthread.php?387647-350-Legend-and-Cast-Boo...

Last year I built an AR based chipmunk gun to defend MM from the hordes of ninja chipmunks that have sworn to kill him if he goes camping anywhere near Little Switzerland in the NC mountains.

Realizing that bears and feral pigs wandering on the roads are also a threat to MM's life, I have built a more substantial gun to handle them.

http://castboolits.gunloads.com/showthread.php?387647-350-Legend-and-Cast-Boo...

For those who noticed I have been missing for a few months ..... a reason to be absent no less.



Grin   ...... the bears and the hordes of pigs would just eat MM in his sleeping bag like a juicy yummy burrito wrap .....

I had no Idea some states had come their senses about pistol bullets in rifles instead of "Mandatory Shot-Gun ONLY" .

I've been using my .357 rifle for hunting a long time and it takes dear as good as anything else.    It might be easier to hit with a more "Flat-Shooting" round.  Huh

Heck !  Deer ain't hard to kill , but ya got to hit em in a good spot --- just like anything else.  Wink
..................................

I know two fellers that hunt with big guns : 7mm mag and a 300 Win Mag.   They wound more deer than any other two people I know.  

Just goes to prove Accurate is better than Power any day of the week !  Wink

Its been my experience that a 38 Special pistol is just as deadly on dear as a 45-70.    All you have to aim the thing .   Smiley

Are you not even ridding your Savage for short rides any-more ?

Elmer Kieth would have used a 338 Win mag,  ( I have carried one for dang near 20 years now)

a Pistol job is to get you to your rifle.... that said 357 to 44 mag will do, just remember to have on you when you need it

Rifle anything 308 or so will do fine

Let not forget the time honored 12 gauge/ 18.5 barrel slugs and buckshot still works when you need the support....

As you read the thread reference, you see I had considered loading a stack of 3 triple aught buckshot (after powder coating them) into the long brass 350 Legend case to make a pig exterminator round.   Each buckshot would come out of the gun spin stabilized at greater speeds than the old black powder guns could give it, so yes they could kill a pig.

Two of the bullets I cast come from the world of pistols, the gas checked 200 grain slug comes from the world of 35 Remington and is a pure rifle bullet.

MM, I'm done riding.   It hurts too much and I get frequent dizzy spells now and that isn't good when you are out on a bike.   This upcoming spring I put it in the paper and move it.  

Any of you guys want it, PM me.

Really sorry to hear you won't be riding any more Oldfeller. But it sounds like it is the right decision for you. Take care of yourself friend.

I doubt they'll even allow you in Kalifornia for even touching that.

My pig gun is a Savage (Go Figure) stainless over/under 3” chambered 20ga cylinder choke with rifle sights and a 357 maximum for the top barrel. And always with a 357 magnum revolver for a side arm , just in case !

Hey Kelly’s !

Did not know you had stopped riding, but understandable.  How’s your health otherwise ?
That’s a really nice firearm project.  Will you be going into more ?

Lancer,

I am an advancing diabetic.  All of my various symptoms spring from that.   Eyes, hearing, balance, energy, joint pain (hips, knees, ankles, wrists, fingers) --- all of it is going slowly.

I can still enjoy building a gun and chatting with the gun people on line.   I could enjoy driving my car and meeting up with you bike guys somewhere if you ever get a larger group together again.   I could see even sponsoring a trip, providing tent/food etc. if there were any takers.  

Shame that, there are NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE who will even go on a trip any more ........

Versy,

I got a 3 ball load in mind that will put 3 each 000 buckshot on a string from this mold after powder coating the string of 3 ......



..... into the long long 350 Legend case.  It would be lumpy, but can be smoothed back to spec using a partial insertion into the 350 Legend finished sizing die.

What would California say to me double tapping a BG and hitting him Six Times ???

I call it the evil  Smiley AR load ......

OldFeller, sad to hear you have to stop riding, old age catches up to us all.
I'm over at castboolits also as Eddie2002 and hang out in the muzzleloader forum.
 Spent some time working on light cast plinker loads for my military surplus. They work great out to about 50yds and cost about 10 cents a round.
