Typical of a CNS shot. Often see the same thing when/if I go directly to the animal after the shot.

Generally, I neck shoot or take a high shoulder shot. Same result as in the video, hog goes straight down and stays there.

Good video.

Recommend you try the 300 gr. Barnes TTSX while you are experimenting.

My personal preference is the 405 grain Remington Soft Point, VERY hard hitting and surprisingly accurate bullet.

The Beartootch 525 gr. hardcast 'piledriver' (even subsonic) will shoot through them from any angle (nose to tail if need be). I've never recovered a piledriver from a hog. Of course...it has limited application in terms of trajectory.

That was good 'filming', you got a lot of video recorded in a narrow time frame.

Picked up a 458 last week and can't wait to hit some pork with it.
