Went to a ranch just outside Waco this week its been hunted with dogs and trapped for a while but none to very little night vision hunting. Needless to say the hogs were in for a surprise!

The video below is the first group we encountered they were eating at a hog trap every night but only up to the gate and not going in. One of the ranch hands was actually watching on the cameras when we hit them he saw the hogs dropping but had no idea what was going on lol.

We had three shooters two 6.8's running 120sst's and one 5.56 running 60 gr vmax's all topped with two apollo clip on's and one zeus thermal. As you will see in the video one hog alerts on us and moves off to the left but his friends pay him no mind and continue eating the golden kernels of death! These were all big hogs the smallest was 220 pounds they are hitting the corn silage piles and cattle feeders. The largest hog was by my estimate 300+ pounds and took a hit to the rear leg spinning him around. Even though it was not a vital shot you will see the 120sst and 6.8 was enough to knock him down with a leg shot.

Dont forget to watch in 1080p hd


Here he is.



Another boar 180ish pounds taken later.

Nice hogs and gear! Always enjoy your vids. I've had on and off results with the 6.8 sst's, sometimes I anchor them, sometimes they run off. I use thermal as well.

Hogs are tough Ive had them run off from much larger calibers with good shot placement. I like the 6.8 and SST combo no recoil for quick follow up shots and still has knockdown power. That big one was spun arround and knocked over by a rear leg shot!

Great video.. Those were some big hogs! Have you ever used Barnes TTXS bullets? I use them in .270 and .308 and often take two with one shot if I can line them up.

Yes I have used them they do not anchor the running hogs like the 120sst does, if you gut shot they just zip right through. Plus I hunt cattle ranches I dont want something thats going to keep going and hit a cow!

Texaslawman, have you tried the Winchester Razorback ammo? I bought a case of them in .308 to try. Seems they are a cross between FMJ and Barnes. I want to shoot a 300lb boar in the slates and see if it drops him. I have killed a few big hogs with barnes and btsp's lodged in their plates and never phased them. .243 to the neck drops them every time. Wanting a bullet that I can do a follow up shot and drop one. Can't count how many hogs I have shot in the slates with regular ammo and never found (I usually hunt next to or in the deep woods).
