We are having very warm weather down here too. I am off camping and fishing for the next week and it is going to be 30C, 86F. Not that hot but at this time of the year it is usually 10 degrees C less than what it is.

I am a real corelokt fan! As Terminator said "They have been killing game for years." They are a no fuss underated projectile. I started to use the 286 grain factory stuff for my 9.3x62 for pigs and other critters instead of reloading.
I also load the 150gr corelokt in my .308 and one of my 30-06's and they shoot great. I lucked on to 1000 projectiles that were going cheap. So it will feed those rifles for a while.
So I say go ahead and use them in your rifle. They will work just fine for you too.

Shoot, don't know what to tell ya, I clicked on it and it worked for me.   :(


Yep all is good it is working for me now too. It is all true what they say in that video. The proof is right there with what has happened to Kenya as just one example. Why the anti hunting groups cannot see this is unbelievable...

What!!! You mean to say that all the gun nuts over there don't have an AR? We are lead to believe that every 2nd US citizen is toting at least one AR in their arsenal and that the country is awash with them.... :o  ;D

I must fix my earlier statement. I do know there are scout rifles made by various makers. But I never knew Weatherby made one.

Nice work. Pity about the 2nd boar. He looked a bit bigger. Hopefully you will see him next time...

The 9.3x62 is a great calibre. I have a custom made Remington 7600 in it and have used it on a couple of buffalo, scrub bulls and pigs. The 286gr Woodleigh doing 2400 fps doesn't sound like much but it penetrates great and hits very hard. They actually allow it to be used in africa on dangerous game where the .375 is suppose to be the minimum.
Of course you can load it with lighter pills for a flatter trajectory and use it on deer sized critters too.

Yes I have seen quite a few videos where they use air rifles for hunting big game. There is one Pommy fella that has hunted all over the world for heaps of big game with his Benjamin Marauder air rifle.
I have seen some that go up and over .50 cal and are very powerful.
