In preparation for hunting the DM789 tag I drew, I have been putting in as much range time as I can with my .58 Big Boar and the results are very pleasing to me.
After replacing the original front sight, which was black in color, with a fiber optic sight, I was much better able to get an accurate picture over the sights.
I am still considering replacing the rear sight with another fiber optic or an aperture, but as of yet I am cannot decide.
For now I am happy with 90grns FFG and a PRB, so is the rifle, the last range session resulted in 2 1/8" groups at 50 yards and 3 1/2" at 75 yards. The patches I recovered were is such a condition as to be "reuseable" ( I did reuse a patch as an experiment, without relubing, the result was a flyer ).
The rifle also shoots the Hornady Great Plains Bullets, 525 grn, in front of the same load, where I point them.
What really surprises me is how mild the recoil is from this rifle, even with 110grn FFG and the 525grn conical, I figured this combo would get my attention ! What a fun time this Big Boar is ! Now, I just need to decide on which projectile to hunt with.
For those of you with the greater experience, what opinions have you to offer, if any ?
