This hunt actually took place back in the heat wave we had in December. (Notice the short sleeves and sweat on my face after dragging him a few yards to take pics.)

This boar came out just before dark and I was able to get the shot on video with my IPhone before the spent case knocked the phone over. I just need to learn how to get that stuff off the phone and onto the forum but for now the pics will have to do.

I have shot countless pigs over the last few years with the 6.8 Accubond but this was the first one that was bad enough to stop the bullet from exiting. I am still more than happy with the results though. The bullet smashed through both shoulders and was found just under the skin on the opposite side. He dropped in his tracks.

Picture perfect expansion if you ask me.

Wow! Is that a home brew or off the shelf round? I'm new to 6.8 and looking for a favorite off the shelf round...

It is a standard off the shelf Silver State Armory 110 Nosler Accubond load. SSA is now owned by Nosler but its my understanding they are still producing this same load.

I'm going to guess he was about 30 coyote meals.
