    Shot couple hogs over past couple months. Thought I'd share what the bullets look like after passing through lungs, meat, heart, and mud. Some made comple pass throughs, and others still stayed inside big hogs. Still have couple more different bullets I wanna try.

    Here's a pic of my pistol

    Very interesting. While the Corbon looks to have perfect expansion, I like the Hornady and the Winchester Silvertip while I think the Buffalo Bore is the least favorable outcome. Just my opinion.

    Do you have the penetration probables for each of these?

    I had weights, lengths, and pictures of damages to hogs, but can't seem to find where I stashed them. They all penetrated hogs within 25yards, and had to use buddies metal detector to find these bullets. I have 4 recovered bullets here, but done lost couple. Farmer here in Louisiana pays me to get rid of wild hogs, so I take them out with my 10 and 223. My family an friends get the meat, and none goes to waste.

    I've been working on my reloading skills with my friend, so I can test out some ranger t, gold dots, and even black talons. Havnt gott a chance to try any hard cast yet.

    The Hornady 165 and the Silvertip look real nice.

    Dude, you should be charging guide fees for hunts and double-up on all that fun back in my home state.

    LoL I wish! I've even got one with my bow. Here's a pic of it in back my truck; almost wide as truck! I shot her with muzzy 125gr broad head. That's my hand next to the hole.

    Hopped up win 175gr silver tip. My buddy pulled an hot loaded it. Just to give you guys an idea of power and penetration of a silver tip pushed to the limits. No trees where harmed :)

    One shot at about 20 yards; bullet entered mid front shoulder, busted both lungs, and was retrieved on opposite shoulder meat. Wound channel looked like a buzz saw been through it.

    The bufflo bore slaps them hard, but looses steam quick. I dont know if its because the jackets are seperating, or because it done shreaded all its jacket. My favorite round is the silver tip; the only weight it looses is the pedals that fold back. The 180gr xtp is awesome round to under 25 yards.

    I might have missed it, but did you say that these were all factory loads?

    Great post! Thanks for all the pics and info on these various loads! I like the way those Silvertips expand.. pity that Winchester loads em so weak.

    I'd be interested to see how the 200gr XTP JHP rnds that Underwood just made available would do vs a pig. I think they'd be devastating. Underwood's hotter than just about every factory load you mention in this post, (their 200gr XTPs fly at a true 1250fps).

    I'd also like to see the wound channel that a 135gr nosler JHP would leave in a pig.. it'd probably look like it swallowed a grenade. :supergrin:

    Shot everything from 200lb bores to 20lb piglets.
    Gun set up is:
    Stock barrel: shows no signs of failure from hot loads (2011 model)
    Ghost rocket 3.5 connector
    Lw 4lb striker spring
    Lw 6lb trigger spring
    Lw stainless guide rod
    Lw 20lb recoil spring
    High polish trigger group
    Lasermax unimax green laser
    Stock


    All ammo was factory loads except the ones shot at the trees. I shot trees with hot loaded 175gr silver tip. I plan on ordering some ammo from underwood tonight at work.

    Also if you guys won't me to try any of your ammo; hand loaded or factory loads you can mail me one or two bullets.

    I have some 200 gr WFNGC hardcast bullets hand loaded to 1200 fps. Functions safely in my gen 3 G20. If you would be interested in giving a try, I could ship them to you. PM me with the contact info.

    I also have some 165 gr Gold Dots loaded to 1335 that might be interesting too.
