Hogs Gone Wild - This Week on Gun Talk Radio

Mandeville, LA – It’s a unique solution to the wild hog problem in Texas and a cartridge guide, this week on Tom Gresham's Gun Talk (R) Radio, the original nationally-syndicated radio talk show about guns and the shooting sports.

Keith Nichols started Hogs Gone Wild in 2009, after landowners continued telling him to kill as many hogs as he wanted. Realizing there was a lot of meat available on the hogs, Nichols started his non-profit organization that pairs hunters with land owners and farmers with a hog problem, and then donates the hog meat to area shelters. Hogs Gone Wild also raises money for scholarships for kids of wounded military veterans. More information is available at http://www.hogsgonewild.org/.

Andrew Chamberlain has compiled the Cartridge Comparison Guide, which “compares every factory available cartridge from the 17 calibers up to the 50 caliber cartridges. It compiles cartridge data from all major ammunition manufacturers such as Hornady, Nosler, Barnes, Swift, Norma, Sierra, Weatherby, Winchester, Remington, and Federal”, and includes pictures and detailed narrative. More info can be found at http://www.cartridgecomparisonguide.com/.

Hi mylife, I’m having a research problem, specifically trying to find muzzle energy stats for 38 spl +p Corbon PowR Ball and Hornady Critical Defense ammo in the 125 grain size. Spear, Winchester, Double Tap, most others give this data on their sites.

Maybe somebody here can help.

He may return to the topic later.

I had a coworker ask me about a good varmit gun.
He was leaning Mini 14.
I leaned him AR 15.

Dad wants a ultra-lite rosco, but is afraid the 357 might be too hot, but is concerned the 38 don’t have enough poop to do the job. Double Tap and a few others have them up in the 385 ft/lb range, but most 125 gr JHP 357’s are north of 500 ft/lbs. My 9mm +p’s are well above 400.

I thought I still had a box for the PowRBall, but can’t find it. As for the Hornady, I’m looking at a box of 38 spcl 125gr, JHP/XTP. If that is the one, it shows muzzle=900fps, 50 yds=856, and 100 yds=817.

Hornady has that ammo in +p, but those stats are muzzle velocity.

I had a titanium snubbie in 357 (15oz?) and it was brutal, which is why I told dad he might want to look at 38 spl +p.

I’ve got a Scandium S&W 360, it weighs 12 ounces.

It’s a hand smacker with just .38 Special. I can’t imagine what a .357 would feel like much less .38+P...

Your 1st entry is standard 38 spl and gives muzzle energy. Your 2nd is for their critical defense ammo, but they only list velocity. Wonder what gives.

Maybe a better question si how to convince old dad the 38 spl +p is good enough for defense. All his current sd guns are 357 or 45’s.

Try to find ammo that has a low muzzle flash and preferably not +P rounds if you have a barrel larger than 3.75”. A heaver bullet will do the same damage with less recoil and muzzle flash. In a dark room, a large muzzle flash from a +P round will temporarily blind you, making it impossible for follow up shots.

Speaking of wheel guns, does anyone have first hand experience with the Ruger LCR in .38 Special? After hearing them talk about it on last weeks show, I'm wondering if it might be perfect for my wife. She has shot my .38s, but the trigger pull is a bit much. Last week, they talked as though the LCR has a smooth and light trigger. That, combined with the Hogue grips and a manageable recoil, make me wonder if it might be a winner for Ms. deo.

If any of you recommend it, I might try to get her to a gun shop that has one as a range rental, and see what she thinks.
