    How far a shot you planning to make?

    I agree that a heavy solid HP round is tops.

    I would avoid the JSP imho not the best thing for them size animals that could get bigger and tuff'er as the hunt goes on. Great for deer by the way. I would als avoid any SD jacketed ammo either.



    A good hardcast lead loading or as mention above a partition round would be my first picks. I'm doing some load testing using BTB bullets but out of a 357max and 14"'ncher bbl. Plan on doing some off season hunting and will be posting storys and photos.

    Now granted the 357max has about 100-300fps on avg more than the 357magnum.

    Small hogs around 100 lbs close in - why not?
