I have a feeling that is a record I will not hold for long.
When is your javelina hunt?

They are a nice looking animinal, not as impressive as a true Boar but still a great looking little animal.

Thanks everyone for the kind words. I am getting to a point in life where my ability to travel and hunt can pick back up, and I want to do most of my hunting with the kipplauf. They are easy to travel with,and light and compact to pack around while hunting,but still accurate and capable weapons. I have a 222, 30-06 and 9.3x74r in the half stock rifle version and 308 in the Stutzen version, but what else would the world traveling hunter need? I think I have it covered and could adjust the loading for the type of hunt I am going on but would you add a caliber?

Kipplauf Javelina with the .22 Hornet k95
The K95 now has three under it’s belt but we are tagged out on the first day so hunting Coyotes now.
I shot one Javelina at 146 yards from the sitting position, Tim shot one from about 150 yards running, then I shot another from about 75 yards. All with the 45 grain Sierra soft point. The two I shot standing were clean kills but Tim’s required a finishing shot due to shot placement on the running Javelina. Then Tim shot another with his CZ 6.5x55.

Good off- hand shooting Chuck....certainly a single shot is a lot slower than rifles with a bolt and magazine. I guess you've gotta make the 1st shot count. Would be tricky with dangerous game I guess.

My first deer i shot with it was a wounded fallow that blaser bud oscar shot with his M03 9.3. It was a snap shot at 5m when it jumped up and ran from its bed. Offhand shooting should be practiced because you never know when you will need it. Its not a DG rifle but a rifle that gives me pleasure to carry and shoot.

Good shooting Bob. I knew my kipplauf javelina record would not last long. I hope you have a good recipe for them.

Well I took my kipplauf out chamois hunting. Should really be called kipplauf missing. Got one shot at a buck and pulled the shot, just missed him. I'll put some video together later.
