While hog hunting is a coast-to-coast sport now, wildly porcine have always been popular game in Texas. And earlier this year, one Lone-Star State retailer has had one rifle in particular win over the pig plinkers.

Local hog hunters like Browning’s new BAR (Browning Automatic Rifle) ShorTrac Hog Stalker, camouflaged in Realtree Max-1 and chambered in .308 Win, and praise the rifle’s superior accuracy.

The rifle’s essentially a version of the FN-Herstal FNAR semi-automatic, but decked out in camo and a Browning Buckmark logo, and sells for $1,499.99.

Virginia Solgot, Able’s marketing manager, notes that recent top-seller has been the Barnes VOR-TX rifle round in 300 AAC Blackout, firing a tipped, 110 grain TSX bullet.

“The reviews and most people commenting say it is the very best hunting load on the market for 300 Blackout,” says Solgot.

A 20-round box is $29.99, plus there is a $5 rebate per box, for up to four boxes–always a help in moving product!

Optics made by Vortex sell especially well, at both ends of the price point spectrum, from the $119.99 Crossfire rimfire model to the high-end Razor HD’s scopes.
