...can tracer rounds hurt a bbl??

I guess a better question is would you shoot a tracer round in an expensive custom bbl??

thanks,

Paul:
I was warned by a well respected smith, that it's a no-no on match grade barrels. If it just a junker, then have at it.

Yes....It will damage a barrel. NEVER shoot one in a match barrel...period.

I think it has to do with the "tracing" material left in your barrel as it burns... kind of like corrosive primer residue...

....I have a handfull of tracers and thought it would be fun to shoot a pig under the full moon with one, BUT not out of my good bbl.

Will have to let someone else do the shooting w/ a factory gun. I would rather watch anyway. I'll bring along the ole weed whacker string and a patch just to get any gunk out.

Thanks!!

And then you run like blazes from the brush fire that you have started on the other side of the pig.

You have rolleyes, a wise guy smile & surprised faces with your remark...you from peta?? THen what?? Then they will either drop dead or run off and die. Who cares.

I thought it would be cool to see tracer whack a pig....Or any vermin for that matter. Ranch is under water from all the rain and wouldn't have to worry about a fire from a tracer for a change plus we've been talking about it for a while now.

We have orders from our biologist to shoot all pigs on sight on our ranch. I keep all the eatin size and leave the big nasty ones for the buzzards. They are actually a huge problem all across Texas. Google it.

I normally ride around with the Federal Game Warden who happens to be one of my best friends every full moon and help keep their numbers under control.

Enjoy your bacon tomorrow & thanks for the input on my post.

In Calif., it would be illeagle [not a sick bird] to shoot any game animal with a non expanding bullet, discharge any tracer round other than by law enforcement agency, and would probably ricochet hitting some light in the loafers tree hugging bastard. Oh well, two out of three isn't to bad. Say, do either of you guys play a banjo? Hopefully you have a sense of humor! Steve :rolleyes:

...has a sense of humor Stephen.

Come on down..you would fit in great. We are importing baby seals to club because killing pigs is too easy.

Our initial thinking was we could have instant barbacoa if the tracer would not exit with a head shot & we could dig in on the spot:-)

Sorry about the California thing...a lot of you guys would make great Texans!!

This does NOT include d.

Mr. Paul Fielder in your own words please explain to us all, why do you believe that someone would like to be Texan?

To those you you who do not know, That is the highest complement that a Texan can possibly give someone of another state. Please accept it as an honor.

The same goes for John Kelly of Australia.

Think John can relate to Kangaroo overpopulations??
Maybe there is a California left coast equivelant down under we are not aware of?? I think they have a gun regulation deal that went bad??


I still don't understand the reason for his comment & follow up insult.


Oh well....back to watching Favre wishing he had hung it up @ GB.

Hey, whoa! This is going way too far.

Paul,

My apologies.

When I made the first comment, it was a casual remark because it seemed to be mildly crazy - you know, full moon, werewolves, sacrificing animals - all that stuff.

I confess I did get a little pissed with your response back. Hell, I thought that smilies were just that - things you put on a message to show that the meaning isn't serious - & tried to be a tad more pointed showing that it had ludicruous connotations.

Actually, we have a great deal here in Australia with our feral pigs. We trap them in snail traps made of rebar sheeting baited with a carcass or two, head shoot them with rimfires when the trap is full, then butcher & sell them to the continent as game meat. We do similar work with feral goats.

...If you had just had the smiles, I may have gotten it. Amazing how communication can get out of whack. WHEW...what a relief...wasn't expecting that from our friends down under!!

Can you send a pic or give me some info on the snail traps?? I don't quite grasp what you are using. We use conventional traps and it helps some but we have to move them after being caught a time or two in the same location. It's kind of a pain but a necessary evil if we want them to keep working. We also accidentally catch a deer every year which is just miserable for them by the time they beat theselves up getting out

It's amazing, we hunt 7,000 acres and I only see pigs in the day time 1 or 2 times a year?? Ours are just nocturnal & we ar getting over run.

We are thinking of using our big round protein feeding pins for the deer this year where we might be able to catch a whole heard but still working on the concept of the one way entrance. Problem is we have 5 pounders through 500 pounders. This way we don't have to worry about deer as they would just jump in & out.
