  1. Just bought a 6.5 Grendel rifle. Think this will work for them jalapeno pigs?

  2. Whats a Jalapeno pig ? It will work on Az Desert peccary. Yes it will for a long range piggy, but a 22 mag will take them out.
     

  3. That sounds awesome!

    It will work fine but so far I have not had a shot over 30 yards.

  5. I have had shots at 20 yards to 300. I don't justify the Grendel as being the ideal pig gun. I just use it as an excuse to buy another gun. BTW, past shots at javelina have been with a 243. Yeah it worked, but I thought a smaller gun might be fun.

    I can teach you to stalk closer :) Sorry, that was a slow pitch I could not resist.

  9. The only part of the pig I eat are the back straps so blast him through the lungs and you're good.
