.30 Remington AR update from Bill Wilson

Received an e-mail from Bill Wilson the other day concerning is hunting success with the .30 Remington AR cartridge out of a Wilson Combat SBR. Here’s what Bill had to say:

Had a GREAT hunt last night, a coyote and 2 hogs with the .30RAR and 1 hog with .45 auto !!!

Attached are pictures of the 160# boar I shot with my .45 ACP compact using the 185gr Barnes TAC-XP bullet at 1075fps, a 210# sow and 295# boar I shot with the .30RAR using the 150gr Nosler Accubond.

Sow was a 60yd shot before dark, the 160# boar was shot about 8:30pm from 18yds using my PVS14 and .45 compact with Crimson Trace laser grip, viewed through the night vision and aimed with the laser………………….works pretty well actually. The big boar was taken about 9:30pm at about 65yds with my suppressed and D740 night vision equipped WC .30RAR SBR.

All shots fully penetrated, which was surprising on the big boar since he was so thick and was a quartering shot. This made coyote kill #5 and hog kills #50 and #51 for the .30RAR so I figure I have killed more game with this caliber than anyone else????
