Guess these guys didn't get the memo. All shots about 100yds shooting Chad's 125gr NBT. Upper is SAA with a BHW 16" 1:8 barrel. First time I've killed anything with the Photon. I am liking it so far. Only gripe I have is if you shoot with wind at your back you can just about watch the shot hit, with the wind in your face it blows the smoke back and can't see nothing but white for a second.

I like the way the 300 sounds when it hit pig. at 2350 fps there is the shot, brief delay and then a deep thump. Just sounds different then your faster rounds when they connect.

Shot the 1st one about dark walking into the backside of the feed pen. 1st round straight to the the chest, he took off toward me and 2nd one rolled him about the time he got to the front of the pen

Sat there for a few minutes, turned around to look at my other feeder and was fiddling with the brightness/focus on the Photon when the spotted one walked out. Dropped that one with a round to the right side of the noggin.

Decided it was time to chill and have a beer, about 30 minutes later the big one stepped out of the brush next to the feed pen. One round square in the chest and he took off. Ran right at me and died about 10 yds in front of my stand. Don't know if I would have found him in the dark if he went the other way as weeds are pretty much all knee to waist high this year.

Im not a 300 guy either but that's just bc Im not fond of the bullet selection for supersonics, but if you do your part it'll clearly work fine.

Look at them cutters on Chewbaca!

Nice hogs! That big one would make a nice euro mount with those cutters.

Yessr, pretty cool ain't it. Hits like a sledge hammer. I shoot the 110 gr Barnes in mine and have downed every pig shot with it so far, and some big ones too.

Good shooting. up

Pretty sure this is a different pig and he is still running around. Hopefully he is next up when I get back out there.

That Barnes 110g is a good round. Downed several with it and it'll stop em with a good shot. Like any round on a hog, bad placement and they'll take off to never never land. And even with a good shot sometimes they'll get up and take off. Tough bastards.

I have to relearn this every so often. Sometimes it is just worthwhile to put an extra shot into downed hogs to help make sure that they stay down. It sucks when you have 3 hogs down, go and get the truck and come back and realize only 2 are still there. bang

I've had this happen a couple of times. Shoot two, watch them go down, go back for the truck and there's only one hog to be found.
For a while, my hunting buddy & I adopted the philosophy "If it's worth shooting once, it's worth shooting twice!" We've somewhat gotten away from that practice, but nowadays when we're hunting together, one of us stays with the hogs while the other goes for the truck.

Very nice. I've killed quite a few pigs with my 300.

I have a good friend that likes to put one more in him when he's down, even if appears to be down down. We rib each other over it. Now there have been some big/old scrappy boars that went down and stayed down but just didn't want to die. Either shoot them again with the rifle up close, use a handgun, or stick them. I prefer the knife because it's quiet, but the 380 does get some action from time to time and heck it's kinda fun to test different handgun ammo on big thick pigs.
