The trades where blowing strong and cold today, perfect conditions to hunt my Ground blind by the feeder.******WARNING********Don't try this unless :You extensively have tested your chosen ammo penetration.You have a deep understanding of the quarry anatomy and a complete knowledge of where, how and when to shoot.You have practiced like no other and can put that pellet consistently in Half the size of the intended target all the time, and always on a cold shot,...groups when you shooting a lot mean nothing,that fists shot from cold means everything.OK, back to previously scheduled programs I got to my Blind at 1 PM, I was carrying the NP2 loaded with the 21gr Baracuda so I made myself comfortable on the ground and started the waiting Game.At Quarter to 4 I noticed a real nice Black boar approaching, it got to about 30 yards, stopped, started to circle a bit and took of in a hurry, something spooked it,......Maybe that was good, this boar would have been borderline shootable with the current equipment...I think.At quarter to 5 this very respectable Blond/Grey young Boar comes in, Its very, very skittish, takes several approaches to the bait only to do a quick Uturn and dart back, I'm trying to turn on the camcorder without doing any damaging movement and every time I'm about to hit start the boar takes off again.after more than half a dozen times I'm thinking it's gonna go for good anytime now, when all of a sudden he actually comes in.I start the recorder and now it's time to pick up the rifle without getting busted I let the Video take over from now :https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUcyrfIO--4&feature=youtu.beI shot many, many Porkers with PCPs, but this one with a 20 FPE break barrel was exhilarating, .....adrenaline was flowing like crazy, believe me

Very nice!Huh ?The head was down and he was offering a square shot at the top of the skull.You don't take the shot head on if the head is up and facing you, this one was a textbook shot and I waited until he was perfectly in line.

Thanks Manny, sorry for the question, you had stated what you used in your initial post. i should have read instead let your video completely took over my logic. thats how exciting your video is especially knowing you used a Nitro. LOL
Manny...by any chance did you ever recover the skull or take any pics of it? I have a similar set up going on...from the blind to the feeding area (I'm actually cutting up coconuts, avocados and breadfruits and putting them in the area) to a gas ram break barrel. The feeding area is actually quite a bit closer...I haven't taken exact measurements, but it's right around 13-15 yards. I'll also be ordering some Eun Jinns, Barracudas, and some other copper-plated varieties to test for accuracy and power. I was curious about how deep the penetration was. I know better, but man, you make it look like you've been doing it with your eyes closed and not even breaking a sweat. I've been taking closer note of cold shots and I've been working like a madman on my accuracy.
