The ammo came today. Box had a lot of paper to cushion and protect but the two boxes were wrapped together and looked like something you would see on National Geographicís Border Wars.
I thought it would have a larger polymer tip but looks like a Hornady SST or FXT but with a black tip. I didnít get to shoot any but will in about 4 days when my rotation is done.

Been some time since i went and shot them too. I found those little buggers were good for fine tuning your deer rifle as well.
I have been seen some reviews on the Tasco game cameras that sound very good for their price.Seems to be mostly sold at WalMart.6 MP is sold out on line at $24.88 but can still be found in stores.8 mp available online and in stores regularly $39 now $28.I would rather use several cameras with acceptable quality spread around than 1 that is great.I also wouldn't worry about getting a $25-$30 stolen.Anyone tried them? I tried to post a link to a Utube video but it didn't work but you can google it. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Tasco-6MP-Low-Glow-Trail-Camera-Tan/55614223

Grouser, The meat thermometer was pretty innovative. What constitutes a hot barrel will vary from shooter to shooter as the touch the barrel method is subjective like a lot of other things.(recoil) We all want to shoot on cooler days and when we have plenty of time, but sometimes neither of those things are possible. Especially if you like to shoot year round and you live in warm climates like Texas, Arizona, or Nevada to name a few of the hot spots that make it hard to do. When pressed for time in the heat of summer, but you want to get out anyway, then warm may be good enough between shots. Whats the difference between warm and cool, if I can still touch the barrel? Some guys like to shoot 3 shots and let the barrel cool, while others shoot 3 shots with time between shots to let the barrel cool. I have to go along with the old school  method that says if you can't leave your palm on the barrel after your own procedure of shooting without drawing it back right away, then that constitutes hot. Sounds like TN is pretty warm too.

Heading out with the 6.5 Creedmoor and the night vision optics tonight. Based on trial cam pics Iíve got the big boar that I missed coming in about twice a week and another  multi colored smaller boar coming in very regularly. On the nights neither show up it seems a few sows and piglets are. Hope I have a video of a successful hunt to post soon!
