Nice Model 100s, Keg. I killed my first deer with a Model 100 rifle, chambered in .308 back in 1964. Wish I still had it.
I assume you're aware of the long-standing, Model 100 firing pin recall?

Thanks..Yes..I have heard of the firing pin...I don't think either of these 2 have been worked on....I really don't know yet if I will like these guns....I have a pre 64 model 88 which I will never get rid of....I found the 243 at a bargain price..then ran across the 308....So I felt like I needed it....

Last week I used my Model 100 (.308) to take a 306 lb Feral Pig on a Hog Hunt in Missouri. My wife out did me though, taking a 326 lb Hog with her Ruger 44 magnum Carbine. We brought home over 350 lbs of boneless Pork from those two.
Here is a freeze-frame still of me shooting my hog, note the spent shell casing in the air above my rifle. Then the two hogs hanging for cleaning. They look domestic but were running with a pack of tuskers and razorbacks.

Al, those are nice hogs but those are not ferals. Both of those are domestic hogs that have been turned out.

Doyle,
Yeah your label is probably correct. To us, as pork-eaters, they filled the bill just right. They were running with a pack of about 50 hogs, all sizes and many mixed colors. Plenty of long noses and black furry backs in the group and some 1/2 and 1/2 'paint jobs'. We watched them moving thru the woods until they approached the feeders, then got these two. Most of the pack ignored the shots and continued feeding. Some of the smaller pigs ran, but most just ate and walked.

Here is Janet's hog where it hit the ground.
