Weatherby Vanguard 270 with a 6-18x50 Bushnell banner scope.
A birthday present.
Rained all day so I haven't been able to try it out yet.

Tho I have always owned several firearms, I have not (for personal reasons) hunted for sport or meat since July 1971 but I think I will try to get back in to it this year or at least start decreasing the feral hog and coyote population here.

Should be a great hog rifle from what I have read, the 270 is supposed to have the flattest trajectory of all the calibers but not cheap ammo, I hope you reload I think those are like 3 bucks a shot, enjoy. And a Weatherby with a variable scope NICE you shouldn't have any trouble hitting anything at any range with that, even at your age, Mosses!

I like the Weatherby's clip style, you can unload the clip from the bottom and don't have to cycle the rounds threw the chamber like some others internal built mags. I don't like that more and more rifles mags are not removable though. so that you can't have extra filled mags already for action. but they are a fine rifle and well built, the synthetic stocks are gaining my respect as they keep weight down and you don't have to worry about scratching up a nice wood stock.

enjoy

I don't hunt for sport either. But IMO, hunting feral hogs isn't sport. It's doing a favor to the indigenous species.

Oh, and nice rifle. The .270 Winchester is a nice cartridge, but ammo is kinda expensive.

Any ammo can be expensive, depending on the brand and what not. You can find .270 for about $1.10 a round.

Hey Don, Welcome to the .270 Club, once you get it dialed in, your going to love it.

My Dad (RIP) was Gunsmith, he built this custom Remington 721 with very significant changes. I've never shot a more accurate weapon than this one, he used to take the heads off of woodchucks at 4-500 yards:

He was invited to Canada by some Farmers he knew as customers of his, to rid the varmints on their farms that were destroying their crops. My Dad and me only kill if the is a good reason, or for food. For example, nothing went to waste on the Buck:

Ayup as a kid a local corn farmer would give us a nickel for every crow we shot with our .22s, not a bad deal for a bunch of jr high school kids who got some target practice and got paid for ridding crows from his corn fields. even made enough profit to replace the rounds we used once we got to be better shots and if we could find the dam crows. see we had to hang them off his fence line to get paid. back then I think .22s were like 50 cents a box of 50 rounds, if I remember right, memory ain't what it used to be.

to this day I can still light a stick match at 100 yards with that .22, I still have the same gun with the same 3x9 Bushnell scope. Marlin model 60.

Now days I get my practice on woodchucks/goffers and raccoons on our farm but don't get paid in money, just good home grown, non GMO, food and a happy wife. if the wife's happy I am happy, usually.

To me it would depend on if you're doing it for fun, or pest control. I wouldn't want to do it if the woodchucks weren't an issue, but if they're damaging crops, etc., then you have to do something. I don't like killing mice or rats either, but I'll set traps if I find them where they shouldn't be. On a side note, a friend of mine had mice get in his house, but he couldn't bear to kill them so he used a humane trap so he could release them. I think he caught and released the same mouse 20-30 times. He should have just bought a bigger cage and called it a pet.

Yeah, it's when it's being done strictly for "target practice" that I have a problem accepting the activity.

Same here. I like to leave animals be, but if they're into my food... then all bets are off.
