Welcome back Juan, good to see you. That is one nice boar you got there, congrats.

Yep TTSX's and TSX's work. They are my preferred hunting bullet.

People who "shoot" at dear from a thousand yards do not impress me at all. But if a "hunter" can stalk in to less than 100 yards of an animal to take a shot is much more impressive to me.

Deer hunting at 1000 yards allows too much flight time of a bullet for the critter that can move . JMO!

Gotta love that  ;D

Congrats on a great hunt. Please give your son my best wishes and let him know that although he may be missing part of his body it will make him a stronger person all over. Both physically, mentally and emotionally. He will discover that nothing is impossible if he puts his heart and soul into it.

Lately, most firearm websites (including Weatherby.com) now have a pop-up that asks if you are at least 18 years of age or to enter a date of birth. What is totally silly to me is that any kid old enough to count can simply click "yes" or type in a fictitious date of birth and enter. So, it just seems like an annoying, pointless hoop to jump through to enter a site. Am I the only one who thinks this is downright stupid?

Yep I agree Tex, just an annoying pointless hoop to jump through as you said.

Now that is a trophy photo! You all know I love a decent photo of animals at the kill site and this is a perfect example. I absolutely love that picture.
Congrats to you all for scoring such a beautiful looking critter. Well done.

Blessed to have 100's of acres to shoot at.

Yes I too am lucky I have private property where I set up my own personal rifle range. My mate that owns all the properties also owns one that actually has a proper range on it but I never use it. Prefer the "peace and quiet of my own lol"

It is a nice rifle. I'm not in the market for one either. I have 5 .22 rimfire rifles. Including a Krico with a beautiful piece of timber on it. Then I have two .17 HMR's one of which is a gorgeous Weatherby XXII.

Congrats on getting your first Weatherby. The .300 win mag is a great caliber. Each rifle is completely different and yours may not like what someone else's does. About the best thing to do is get your hands on as many different types of factory ammo and shoot some groups to see what yours likes.
