Don't you just love that resounding SMACK sound a 120gr SST makes when it connects solidly?

Exhibit A:

Yes, yes I do love that sound but it doesn’t compare to the 300 grain 12 gauge slug hitting a hog lol

Yup! All that solid lead-to-pork contact sounds sweet to me!

The 6.8 is the #1 choice for hunting deer and hogs in an AR15

Ran out of 120sst's a few weeks back and now shooting my supply of Fusion 115's. I hate the Fusions, nothing goes drt except coyotes and even they get up and run too often. I miss my SST'S!

It's the best part of shooting suppressed, I think.

With the wind in my face, the smacks on both pigs were so loud and clear...any night hunting is good but this one rates in my top 4-5 outings.

Hard to believe as the Fusions kill everything I point them at. Very accurate in both of mine also.
