In my AO feral pigs are an agricultural pest. They can be shot on sight day or night with or without lights and baited traps are the norm.

So in the pest control mode they will use any 5.56mm fmj or soft point.
They are generally firing from a blind at most 30 yards away.

It is pest control and not hunting in that case.

Jump to the 6:45 mark to see how the magwell swaps-out....

If you've looked at the bolt and bolt carrier design, this carbine has the potential to use interchangeable bolts for different pistol calibers. Couple this with different caliber takedown barrels and magwells and you have a carbine that could use scrounged ammo so long as the recoil spring and buffer can handle the energy. Anything from .32ACP to .45 Super subject to what could fit the magwell channel.
My son, you will travel far, but never be alone, for I am with you, my M14 and battle axe comfort you.

I also read that the tungsten "deadblow" buffer thing is numbered, hinting that there may be other weights or sizes for swapping calibers.

Or it's from forging. I dunno how tungsten works...

Been thinking about this rifle a lot lately as a fun range, smallish game hunting, defense, bug-out, truck gun.

I'm really thinking of something it can't do in some form or another at least half decently... besides shoot 200 yards and up accurately.

Hunting moose.

Shooting skeet.

Easily shooting birds in flight.

Running wadcutters.

Concealing in your sweat pants. The speedo will be tough too.

I'm pretty sure it doesn't give hand jobs. The one I held did not. Maybe defective?

How big are the birds? Ostriches flying would be doable...

Why would my wadcutters be running from me? I better catch them...

You'd be surprised what I pack in my speedo underroos

Did you have the action open or closed?

:clap:

I laughed hard enough I pooped myself. Good thing I was in a convenient place for that.

Anyway, I just cycled the action vigerously for about 3 minutes. The guy behind the counter gave me a weird look. Not the first time though.

The Attwoods near me has 1 on the shelf, for 519.00. I held it tonight, nice, take down is exactly as hard to manage as the .22, easy and felt well built. We already have and are fans of the 10/22 takedown...think itll have a bigger bro around soon.
