Popped her right below the left ear with the 6.8. Dead immediately. Not even a curly shuffle. Was weird, bullet went in and turned hard right and followed the spine all the way up between the shoulder blades and stopped at the base of the neck.

This was my first kill with the 6.8 and suppressor.

Very nice!

Yeah, the terminal ballistics can do some very unexpected things. Sometimes seemingly good shots deflect in manners that don't do the expected damage. Yours did the opposite and did better than expected results given the placement.

About 75 yards. She was in a group of about 8 and looked like a winner. Not to big and not too small

Outstanding!


I'm also running with a couple suppressed 6.8s, though been having trouble locating hogs lately.

so what did the other 7 do when you shot? is the gun quiet enough that they will stand around and let you shoot at them again?

for whatever little I know about it...I know when suppressing rounds...its not uncommon to load them down to slower ballistics....bullets that are travelling abnormally too fast or slow are more prone to do erratic things.

I had some extremely managed recoil loads that we put together for a .270....muzzled at barely 2000fps....they behaved strange as well.

So tell us, what did you think of the suppressor's ability (noise level) on the 6.8?
